Margot Gotoff, a Cincinnati artist and teacher, is the winner of this year's Ohioana Pegasus Award, given by the Ohioana Library Association to honor an Ohioan for exceptional cultural achievements.
Gotoff, born in Rochester, moved to Cincinnati in 1986 when her husband accepted a teaching position at University of Cincinnati's Classics Department. She sculpts in clay, bronze and glass. Her larger-than-life glass sculptures have been exhibited and collected widely. The Ohioana Library Association gave out 15 awards this year — 14 for authors and one Pegasus Award for cultural achievement. Gotoff was the only southwest Ohio resident to win any of the awards.
