Art History: Heinrich Schliemann and "Priam's Treasure"

Schliemann was a pioneer in the field of archaeology and excavated some of the most important sites in the Western world, including Mycenae in Greece and (what he believed to be) ancient Troy in Turkey in the late 19th century. Interestingly, many of Schliemann’s methods and conclusions are the focus of controversy and debate by modern scholars, so we will discuss his fascinating legacy in the worlds of art, archeology and history. Presented by Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design.

Art History: Clara Driscoll's Tiffany Lamps

Come learn about the fascinating Clara Driscoll, an Ohio native who became one of Tiffany & Company’s most innovative and important designers at the turn of the 20th century. In the past, little was known of Driscoll’s contribution to the Tiffany Studios, but recently, scholars have discovered the great extent to which Driscoll helped create the now-iconic, Art Nouveau look of the Tiffany lamps. We will explore Driscoll’s beautiful designs for Tiffany & Company and discuss how she, as a woman, rose to such a prominent position in the era. Presented by
Ann Shifflet of Columbus College of Art and Design.
