Marguerite Louis Blasingame (1906-1947) was an American sculptor. She was born Marguerite Louis in Honolulu in 1906. She graduated from the University of Hawaii and then went on to earn an M. A. in art from Stanford University in 1928. Marguerite returned to Hawaii, where she became an established sculptor of figural works, many of them bas-reliefs in wood and stone. Her depictions were usually sinuous in contour with simplified anatomy. During the Great Depression she was a Works Progress Administration artist and filled many commissions for architectural panels. She was also a member of the Hawaiian Mural Guild. Marguerite Louis Blasingame died in 1947 while traveling in Mexico.

The Honolulu Academy of Arts is among the public collections holding works of Marguerite Louis Blasingame. Her sculptures in public places includes an untitled 1935 marble sculpture in Ala Moana Park, Honolulu, Hawaii and Hawaiian Decagonal Fountain (1934–1935) at Kawananakoa School, Honolulu, Hawaii.
