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.

BILL FOLEY: Photo in the Streets

4 Days • June 4-7 • 12:30-4:30 pm • All Levels • Member $294.10/Non-Member $346

Join us for this session with the internationally recognized Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Bill Foley. In this four-day workshop, you will explore Indianapolis neighborhoods, as you make photographs and talk to/photograph "new" strangers you meet. After a day on the streets, the class will return to the Art Center to process the days "take". The following morning will be spent editing your work, making contact sheets and discussing/critiquing the work. With new confidence about street shooting, we will venture to a new location to repeat the exercise. This is sure to be a story-filled adventure for all. Cameras and materials provided.
