DECEMBER 22—Keeping Her Alive

Keeping Kitten Caitlin alive, the way museums do.

Caitlin was, honestly, a bit of an art history genius. She found her calling in an AP Art History class at St. Mark’s School —-looking at slides in the dark, there was nothing better, she always said.  At BC, she received the Art History award, and graduated magna cum laude. She would have loved to have gone on to further study in New York or London or Paris, but her health had already started restricting her.

Here she is, immortalized in Pittsburgh, earlier this summer, at the Andy Warhol Museum. I love how she takes off her oxygen at 3:47.
