In Memoriam: Marilyn Glick

Marilyn Glick, of Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away Friday, March 23, at the age of 90. Glick began collecting contemporary glass art with her husband, Gene, in the 1980s and was one of the nation's most noted studio glass collectors. She cultivated what she referred to as her "addiction" by meeting artists, traveling to their studios, and immersing herself in studying the medium. Her private collection includes works by Dominick Labino, Harvey Littleton, Howard Ben Tré, Bertil Vallien, and Dale Chihuly. This love of art glass inspired the Glicks' recent gift to Ball State University to construct its new Glick Center for Glass, a hot-glass studio and instruction center. She is survived by her husband, four daughters, many grandchildren and three great grandchildren. For a full obituary, click here.
