Seeing Alice Schille's Watercolors in a New Light

The Columbus Museum of Art's exhibition, In a New Light: Alice Schille and the American Watercolor Movement, showcases the Columbus native’s work from her very beginning through her final years on the occasion of her 150th birthday. In honor of Schille's outstanding contributions to Ohio art, we take a look back through the Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery archives to see how these watercolors change the way we view the world around us.
