Thomas J. Thomas


W. George Pinnell Award for Outstanding Service (1997)
Indiana University East
School of Liberal Arts
Department of Fine Arts


Thomas is the sole fine arts professor on the East campus, but if initiative, enthusiasm and direction could be exhibited, his work would fill several art museums. IU East Division of Humanities and Fine Arts Chair Judith Roman-Royer says: "He may be the only college professor around who drives a van all over the state in his spare time so that IU students, faculty and local artists have more opportunities to show their work and learn about the art world."
