South Lobby Athena woodblocks


The artwork in the South Lobby of Hatcher is the work of Jim Cogswell, Associate Professor at the UM School of Art and Design. The images in the woodblocks, printed in colors characteristic of ancient Greek vases, represent the Greek goddess of Wisdom, Athena, to whom the Parthenon is dedicated.

The woodblocks complement the Parthenon Frieze replica on the second floor of Hatcher. The woodblock prints and the images of the Elgin marbles (not pictured) were created for a 1995 exhibit in the Nashville Parthenon, the only existing full scale replica of the Athenian Parthenon.
