The Academy is eternally grateful to the Paces.


Officially opened in January of 2009,
the Pace Galleries are within the new Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center and were made possible by a gift from the Paces.  Stephen Pace is a world-renowned artist.  He and his wife, Palmina, lived in Indiana on the campus of the University of Southern Indiana, which also benefits from a Palmina F. & Stephen S. Pace Galleries. 

Stephen Pace was born in Missouri in 1918.  He studied art in Indiana, MexicoNew York City, Paris and Florence.  He served in World War II.  He was a professor at American University in Washington, DC and retired in 1983.  Palmina Pace was born in Massachusetts.  She worked in advertising in New York City and married Stephen Pace in 1949.  She has managed her husband's career since that time and has been instrumental in his ability to devote himself to his art. 

The Academy is eternally grateful to the Paces.

Until his recent death, Stephen resided in New Harmony, IN, with his wife, Palmina, who continues to live there.
