Beloved Caryatids Come Alive at Greek Consulate Exhibit in New York

The research of scholars like Dr. Katherine Schwab, professor of Art History at Fairfield University in Connecticut,  make history come alive. An exhibit at the Greek Consulate in Manhattan encouraged by Amb. George Iliopoulos, the Greek Consul General, and his wife Anthousa, titled “Photographs of the Caryatid Hairstyling Project,” features photos of modern women that prove that the elegant hairstyles worn by the famous Caryatids from the Erechtheion were based on reality, not fantasy.

The exhibit runs through Mar. 27 at the Greek Consulate at 69 East 79th Street in Manhattan.

Student models from Fairfield University had their hair arranged by a professional hairstylist. A short film of the project has been screened in Athens several times, as well as in numerous cities in the United States. This exhibition, which is free and open to the public, has been organized by the Art History Program at Fairfield University.  For further information about the project, please visit www.fairfield.edu/caryatid.
