Schiller Treasures

10 Dec

During a time period when there were many great threats to democracy, Philip Schiller and his wife Sue collected art that encompassed the expressive thoughts of the time. Their collection captures reactions to the great depression, the stock market crash of 1929, and Roosevelt’s New Deal. Many people were viewing Socialism as an option and evaluating the value of unions.
Fortunately, this collection of art has survived and many of the pieces are now in the possession of the Columbus Museum of Art.
