Making Art Visible for Everyone: A Conversation with Athena Tacha
by Heleni Polichronatou
Athena Tacha was born in Greece and received MA degrees in sculpture (Athens) and art history (Oberlin College) and a PhD in aesthetics (Sorbonne). Since 1970, she has done large-scale outdoor sculpture and conceptual/photographic art and has executed more than 40 large commissions for public sites throughout the United States.
Tacha’s work is represented in many museums, and she has exhibited widely. Atlanta’s High Museum hosted a large retrospective in 1989, and a 40-year retrospective recently finished a tour of Greece.
