Barbara E. McCullough

d. June 12, 2020

Barbara E. McCullough, 73, noted fine artist and graphic designer, of Salt Lake City, formerly of Chestnut Hill and New York, passed away Friday, June 12, at the University of Utah Hospital. Born in Philadelphia, she was the younger child of the late Victoria and James McCullough of Chestnut Hill. Ms. McCullough is survived by her loving family: her sister and brother-in-law, Carol McC. Fitzgerald and Hon. James J. Fitzgerald, III; her niece, Melissa A. Fitzgerald; and her nephews, James J. Fitzgerald, IV, and Craig McC. Fitzgerald and their families. Barbara was a proud graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Class of 1968, and studied at the Tyler School of Art, New York University and with some of the great artists of our time, including Milton Glass, John Zweig, Rackstraw Downes, Mercedes Matter, Sidney Simon, and Peter Agostini. Barbara’s beautiful art was her life. She was a well-respected fine artist, and, in her words, was “passionate about all things visual”. Art was Barbara’s “joy and truest language of expression.” As a graphic designer, Barbara received numerous awards during her career in consumer advertising and branding which included serving as art director at Dunham & Morris, Inc., Levine Huntley Schmidt Plapler & Beaver, and Ferguson Advertising in New York City. Wherever Barbara resided, she always exhibited her pride and enthusiasm as a Penn alumna. In Utah, she co-founded the very popular annual “Penn/Wharton Sundance Schmooze”, an informal gathering in conjunction with the Sundance Film Festival. This annual event has grown and expanded its reach since its beginnings almost a decade ago. “Barbara was an extraordinary artist, whose heart was filled with love, kindness, and generosity. Despite her health challenges in recent years, she pursued her art and continued to inspire those whose lives she touched, with her dry wit and joyful sense of humor”, her family said. There are no services planned at this time.
