The Ed Paschke Foundation
The mission of the Ed Paschke Foundation is to research, document, protect and share
Ed Paschke's art and creative legacy. Our main goal is to bring the artwork of Ed Paschke
to the public through exhibitions, publications, and multi-media forums including film,
video and the Internet. We look forward to working with museums, galleries and individuals to develop and sponsor exhibitions and events that showcase his artwork. We hope to create a comprehensive virtual archive of the his art and resource materials to be easily accessible by students, art historians, and others interested in learning and understanding the processes, techniques and methodology he utilized in producing an extensive creative legacy. One of our greatest goals was achieved when Lionel Rabb and Vesna Stelcer opened up the Ed Paschke Art Center ("EPAC") in 2014. EPAC provides a centralized location with a permanent collection of artwork, physical archives, research and resource materials, and a media center in an effort to provide a place for interested individuals to learn about and appreciate Ed Paschke the artist, the educator and the person.

The Ed Paschke Foundation & The Ed Paschke Art Center
For clarification purposes it is important to note that there are two not-for-profit organizations supporting the art and legacy of Ed Paschke. The Ed Paschke Foundation was created by the family of the artist (see mission statement above). The Ed Paschke Art Center Organization (EPAC) is a separate organization created and funded by Lionel Rabb and Vesna Stelcer with full cooperation of the family, and that runs and manages the Ed Paschke Art Center.
While these two foundations are distinct organizations, EPAC is a fantastic destination to visit and the absolute best place to experience the art of Ed Paschke and learn about his legacy. The Ed Paschke Foundation (EPF) whose primary public presence is this website, is the informational center for the artist. EPF is the go-to source for reproduction and licensing requests, the artist's archives and biographical information, current exhibitions, and for information about purchasing original art.

The art matters of the Estate of Ed Paschke are managed through the advisory board of the Ed Paschke Foundation under the direction of Marc and Sharon Paschke. While no gallery or person exclusively represents the Estate or its' artwork, some work is currently available on consignment.
When Ed Paschke unexpectedly passed away in November, 2004 much of his archives were not in any way organized. Information such as sales records, paintings locations, high quality images of artwork, complete exhibition lists, even complete lists of all the art works he had completed were nowhere to be found. For the past 15 years we have worked hard to try to put find out this information but several holes remain. If you are a collector, or even someone who has a single Paschke painting or drawing please email us and let us know. We will not share the information with anyone. Periodically specific paintings are needed for photographs, loans for exhibitions or other information, especially the paintings from the 1960s and early 1970s. Furthermore, if you have questions about the art that you own we can be of assistance. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
