Marshall Dulaney Pitcher Award and Scholarship
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, the Marshall Dulaney Pitcher Award has recognized artistic excellence and offered inspiration for Wonsook Kim School of Art students since 1970. This highly prestigious award was established by the Pitcher family in memory of Marshall Pitcher. Pitcher was a talented painting student, who was passionately interested in and influenced by the art, music, and poetry culture of his time. Before transferring to Illinois State University in 1969 as a sophomore, he studied at Antioch College. The MDP Award, as it has come to be known, honors outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in the visual arts who demonstrate exceptional artistic talent, dedicated studio practice, and academic excellence. In addition to a monetary award, this distinguished recognition includes an individual exhibition prominently displayed within the Student Annual.
“It is the beauty of Marshall Pitcher’s work which will survive. The extension of that beauty is the goal to which we should all aspire.”
