Peschke Opening

The Peschke opening at Bryn Mawr was pretty amazing. I will look back at this evening as a landmark in my academic life. Thanks to all the wonderful lenders and museum staff that helped me put Peschke on the art-historical map. The festivities began with my lecture, "Georg von Peschke: The Archaeology of Greek Life."

With Tracey Cullen, editor of Hesperia. In 2007, Tracey insisted that I track down the Peschke estate in order get copyright permission to use a Peschke reproduction. This lead to my discovery of the Peschke family in California and the beginning of a wonderful relationship.

With Brian Wallace, the new Curator and Academic Liaison for Art and Artifact Collections at Bryn Mawr College. Brian began his new job in January and inherited the project in process. He shepherded its completion victoriously. I'm proud that this was his first show at Bryn Mawr.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of this lady, Celina Gray
The genius of Steve Tucker, exhibitions designer. Steve has done extraordinary projects at Bryn Mawr, the Rosenbach Library, the Philadelphia Library Company, etc.
