The Blue Marbles Project: Julia Marshall (2011)
Julia Marshall, San Francisco State University Professor of Art Education, receives one blue marble thank you in the lobby of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in Union Square. She was there with other Bay Area arts educators to explore "The Collective Impact of the Arts" in 2011.

Marshall taught at San Francisco State for thirty years and served as mentor for thousands of students. Her innovative approach that integrated creativity with science and global culture attracted international attention. She collaborated with many individuals across the globe as well as with local organizations including the San Francisco Art Institute, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the San Francisco and Alameda County School Districts. She organized art education programs in San Francisco as well as in Central America and East Asia.

Although Marshall professed "teaching is my art form," she worked as a studio artist in media including painting, wood sculpture and bronze and exhibited regularly in galleries and community centers. Her art often drew from international sources informed by her intrepid travels in Europe, Central America, and especially Asia - including sites in Afghanistan, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
