Marie Medica Pugh Visiting Artist Series

Marie Medica Pugh was a longtim student and supporter of the Art Center. She and her family were familiar faces at the Art Center since moving to Indianapolis in the 1970s. In November 2015, Marie lost her battle with cancer. Before her passing, Marie, along with her husband Newell and their children, discussed leaving a legacy gift to the Art Centerin her honor. Thus, the Marie Medica Pugh Visiting Artist Series was born. The series, designed to bring nationally-recognized master artists to the Indianapolis Art Center for special workshops, kicked off in summer 2016.
