SPOTLIGHT ON PHILANTHROPY: Betsey Heuisler, artist, teacher, and longtime friend of MICA

Betsey died of cancer June 15, 2020. One year later, family and friends came together to celebrate her life. Donations in Betsey's memory will fund a scholarship at MICA. Her husband, Stan Heuisler reflects: "In 1969, while she was still a graduate student at MICA, Betsey Heuisler’s serigraph “Soaring Red” was selected to hang in the Baltimore Museum of Art’s prestigious Biennale. Later she taught painting and drawing at MICA, and created and taught the school’s summer program in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her son and daughter-in-law both graduated from MICA and her daughter-in-law works in the school’s admissions department. The school was a lodestone for Betsey in selling paintings coast to coast and teaching art to students from high school to graduate medical schools."
