Galleries and Exhibits in Columbus
XSM: Xenia Simons Miller, a modernist patron of art and architecture
Through May 2019
Gallery 506 at the Visitors Center
506 5th St, Columbus
Xenia Miller was mate and equal to one of the nation’s most important men—he had been at one time encouraged by no less than Esquire magazine to run for president. She herself became a mover of mountains, one of the region’s, if not the nation’s, most influential art collectors and disseminators, and more than a little influential in helping to shape the architectural legacy for which her husband receives so much credit.
