Having accrued more than 50 years of practiced expertise in artistic education, Dr. Scillia retired from her role as a professor of art history at Kent State University, having held this role from 2003 until 2018.

Throughout her career, Dr. Scillia has served as an adjunct curator and assistant to the director of the Chrysler Museum of Art, and as a visiting lecturer with Franklin and Marshall College and Case Western Reserve University. She initially began in the field as a research assistant at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Although her career was filled with highlights, Dr. Scillia is especially proud to have updated courses at the University so that they could become more process based in their outcomes.

Before entering the field, Dr. Scillia earned a Bachelor of Arts from Stony Brook University in 1967. Subsequently, she received a Doctor of Philosophy from Case Western Reserve University in 1975. In order to remain aware of changes in the field, she affiliated herself with the College Art Association, the Midwest Art History Society, the Scholars of Early Modern Europe, and Historians of Netherlandish Art, which she founded. With a plethora of knowledge at her disposal, she has contributed to several articles in professional journals, as well as chapters in books, including "Looking for Fun in All the Wrong Places: Humour and Comedy in Moralizing Prints," "A World of Art, Politics, Passion and Betrayal: Trotsky, Rivera and Breton and Manifesto: Towards a Free Revolutionary Art (1938)," "Stimuli to Invention: New Technologies, New Audiences, New Images" and "Gerard David & Manuscript Illumination in the Low Countries, 1480-1509." Additionally, Dr. Scillia was asked to present a paper for an exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2018.

In light of her professional accomplishments, Dr. Scillia won the Juror Travel Awards through the National Endowment of the Humanities in 1991.
