Richard Parsakian is a shopkeeper and collector. Boxes from his collection, like Warhol’s Time Capsules, in storage for over ten years, have been unpacked, partly unwrapped and arranged. Unopened boxes are stacked tantalizingly in a corner. Richard Parsakian is the owner of Eons vintage fashion store in Shadyside. He has worked with PrideFest, the Pittsburgh Glass Center, Dance Alloy, Attack Theatre, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and the Quantum Theatre.
