KUHF Conversations: Josef Helfenstein

Posted on · A mainstay of the Menil Collection is about to close. For 15 years, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel has housed frescoes from the 13th century that were looted from a Greek Orthodox Church in Cyprus. KUHF's David Pitman stopped by the chapel to ask Menil director Josef Helfenstein why these frescoes meant so much to John and Dominique de Menil, and how he feels about the pieces going home.
