Sketches to Sculptures: Rendered Reality, Sixty Years with Marshall M. Fredericks exhibition
opens today at Saginaw Valley State University

The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum has long sought to make the artist’s work and the Museum known globally. Toward that end, a traveling exhibition of Fredericks’ work has been developed.

Over the last year Museum staff has developed Sketches to Sculpture: Rendered Reality, Sixty Years with Marshall M. Fredericks, an exhibition of 31 small sculptures and 36 related drawings and sketches. It will debut at the Museum (date) and remain on display through June 12.

In January 2012, the exhibition will begin traveling to various historical and art museums around the country. In addition to the sculptures and drawings, the exhibit will include an exhibition catalogue and an interpretive DVD with excerpts taken from Marshall Fredericks’ archival videos, making this a memorable and educational experience for all who see it.

“We are pleased to have assembled such a strong exhibition that demonstrates the relativity of an artist’s sketch to a completed sculpture. Some of the sketches are pencil on tablet paper, while others are beautiful four-color presentation drawings,” said Marilyn Wheaton, Museum director.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from Denis and Madeline Burke, The Jack and Joanne Martin Charitable Foundation, Don and Jo Anne Petersen, and Robert Sarow.
