More about the speaker:
Tripp Cardiff is the Docent Program Manager at the San Antonio Museum of Art. Now primarily a museum educator with broad interests, Tripp has an academic background in Greek and Roman classics. Tripp holds a BA in Classical Languages from Trinity University and a MA in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin. Tripp has co-authored explanatory commentary with Dr. Erwin Cook (Trinity University) for Edward McCrorie's translation of the Iliad (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2012). His Master's thesis argues that the rare images of Odysseus's necromancy were sophisticated pictorial articulations of Greek ideals at the symposium. Tripp maintains a strong interest in ancient Greek literature and mythology and their intersection with the visual arts.
