Scholarship created by Ohio State alumni aims to help persecuted scholars seek refuge

March 3, 2014
A passion for the arts, combined with a desire to give back, led Ohio State alumna Jan Dilenschneider to choose to help oppressed scholars in art from around the world. Dilenschneider, who graduated from Ohio State in 1965 with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts education, said her husband, Robert Dilenschneider, surprised her by giving a gift of $250,000 to the Institute of International Education. This gift established the Janet Hennessey Dilenschneider Scholar Rescue Award in the Arts. Mark Angelson, chairman of the IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund, said the institute began its tradition of rescuing scholars from troubled areas around the world in 1921 with the rescues of Russian scholars… Read more

New selection of murals illustrate streets of Short North

February 27, 2014

These pieces of public art are only two of the temporary murals installed in the Short North Arts District last week. The sides of 11 privately-owned Short North buildings serve as the canvases on which the works of selected artists are displayed. The public art project, titled “Viewpoints: Murals by Young Professional Working Artists,” is an exhibition organized by… Read more
