Heiress Marjorie Schiele studied and
practiced art and befriended early-to-mid 20th century European
avant-gardists. She also, later in life (she died at age 95 in 2008),
decided to leave her estate to the Cincinnati Art Museum.
When Sarah Vanderlip — winner of
Cincinnati Art Museum’s first Marjorie Schiele Prize — arrives here for
the Sept. 29 opening of her show, it will be an Ohio homecoming, a full
circle of sorts, for the California artist.
