Marsha Pippenger

Artist and Instructor
2007, M.A., Humanities

Member since 2016

Marsha Pippenger has been active in Dayton’s art community for more than 25 years, creating, exhibiting, and promoting the visual arts. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio Northern University and a Master of Humanities from Wright State University. She is certified by the Kennedy Center as an Arts Integration specialist. Through Central State University, Marsha completed independent coursework with local artist and educator Bing Davis. While studying with him she began focusing her work on papier colle.

Currently Marsha is an adjunct faculty member at Wright State University and Kettering College where she teaches courses in art and art history. As a Kennedy Center-trained artist, she conducts workshops in Arts Integration for teachers.

Marsha’s work experience includes creating professional graphic art, teaching art in the Dayton Public Schools, and serving on the boards of local arts organizations. Her artwork can be found in local galleries and in a variety of public and private collections. 

For Marsha, the invitation to serve on the Dean's Leadership Board was an unexpected honor. The opportunity allows her to give back to the university by helping current students just as others at Wright State assisted her. There is no better service than that.
