Malcolm Perkins was a 1975 graduate of Rushville Consolidated High School, encouraged in his art by teacher Melvin Gray. Malcolm was the managing director and artist-in-residence of the Oddities and Originals Art Studio in Homer during the 1980s. He preferred abstract expressionism, believing, “Painting is an expression of pure brilliance in color.”

His sister, Amelia B. Perkins, donates his sculptures as a living tribute to her brother.
