Ben Marcune

Benjamin Fortunado Marcune was born in New York City.  He spent his early years in Brooklyn and in Southern California.  He attended UCLA and earned a masters degree in Human Factors Engineering from the California Institute of Technology.  He was also a Fellow of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
    After serving in the Army as a medic in Korea, Ben enjoyed a successful career as a biomedical engineer and industrial designer.  His creative drive and his drawing ability were instrumental in his work in the sciences.
    In mid career, he moved to Pennsylvania and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.  Painting and sculpture commissions began to occupy more of his time, and he eventually became a full time artist and sculptor.  He maintained three studios: two in Historic Bethlehem and one in Bucks County.
    He became known for his landscapes of Bethlehem and Bucks County.  He was also recognized for his portraits of public figures and performing artists.  An extremely versatile artist, Ben created abstracts, etchings, and collagraphs, in addition to his landscapes and portraits in oil.  His heroic sized bronze sculptures can be seen throughout the Lehigh Valley, including the campus of DeSales University.
    Ben Marcune died on March 3, 2018, just shy of his 83rd birthday.  He is greatly missed, and fondly remembered.
