The six Caryatids of the Erechtheion on the Acropolis in Athens wear unusual and elaborate hairstyles.  In 2009 Dr. Schwab, Professor of Art History at Fairfield, collaborated with professional hair stylist Milexy Torres and six students to find out if the elaborate Caryatid hairstyles could be replicated.  The results  include a short film tha that will  be shown during the lecture and new information about these complex hairstyles and their meaning.
