Biographical / Historical:
Marjorie Kreilick (1925- ) is a mosaicist and educator based in Madison, Wisconsin. She went to Ohio State University for her undergraduate and graduate degrees, then went to the Cranbrook Academy of Art where she received her M.F.A. in 1952. She was an apprentice at the studio of master mosaicist Gulio Giovanetti in Rome, Italy, from 1956-1957.

Kreilick was a lecturer at Toledo Art Museum in Toledo, Ohio from 1948 to 1951. She became an art professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1953 and continued to teach there for almost 40 years until her retirement in 1991.

Throughout her career, Kreilick was immersed in the techniques and practices of Italian mosaics and, in addition to her earlier apprenticeship, she spent 2 years in Rome as an American Academy in Rome Fellow, winner of the 1963 Rome Prize. She made mosaics for many commissions over the years and, among these projects, she is most well known for the 10 large-scale mosaic murals that she created for the State Office Building in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1963. The murals are inspired by the Midwestern landscape. Many of her works reflect her appreciation of nature and she sometimes incorporated materials, such as stones and pebbles, into her mosaics.
