Momentum Emerging Curator: Margo Shultes von Schlageter

Margo von Schlageter grew up surrounded by paintings, drawings and prints. Both of her parents taught art and she was encouraged to take classes throughout her academic career. Since graduating from the University of Oklahoma, first with a Bachelors of Art in French and then a Doctor of Medicine, she has served as a Psychiatrist at the Oklahoma County Crisis Intervention Center.

The opportunity to work with an experienced curator like John Seward motivated von Schlageter to apply for the emerging curator position. Along with Seward, she stresses the importance of presenting work that is finished. In working with the Spotlight Artists she intends to act as a sounding board as they move toward the installing the artwork.

Congratulations Margo! As an artist I thought I was all alone within the Schlageter compound.
