Description

The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum features a unique collection of over a thousand works that span the 70-year career of Detroit-based public sculptor, Marshall M. Fredericks (1908-1998). He is known nationally and internationally for his impressive monumental figurative sculpture, public memorials and fountains, portraits, and medals.

History

The museum features a permanent exhibit of some 200 works by Marshall Fredericks of mostly plaster models, sketches, site models, bronzes, portraits, and wall reliefs; the Artist's Studio, which is a collection of objects from Fredericks' former Royal Oak and Bloomfield Hills, Michigan studios; two temporary exhibition galleries; archives; classroom; gift shop; and reception area. Adjacent to the museum, you'll find an outdoor sculpture garden that includes a growing collection of more than twenty of his bronzes on the beautifully landscaped campus of Saginaw Valley State University.
