A reception with the collectors will be held at the Museum Saturday, January 24 from 4 to 6 p.m. Those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP by calling 989-964-7082.

Museum Director Marilyn Wheaton curated the exhibition, 19th and 20th Century American and European Figurative Bronze Sculptures. It represents a unique Great Lakes Bay regional collaboration with four private collectors in Bay City: Stuart Barbier, Joseph LaDrig, Daniel LeVay and David Spear, as well as Delta College, the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio in Midland, and the Saginaw Art Museum.

The sculptures in this exhibition were created by artists from two continents spanning two centuries. Featured artists include Rene de Saint-Marceaux (French), Hugo Lederer (German), Carl Milles (Swedish American), and award winning sculptors Abastenia St. Leger Eberle, Harriet Whitney Frishmuth and Marshall Fredericks (American).

“We bring three to four temporary exhibitions to the Museum annually for the educational and cultural enrichment of SVSU, the Great Lakes Bay Region, and the broadest possible audience. It’s integral to the Museum’s mission and strategic plan. We believe that an exhibition of works of art that have been collected by local institutions and individuals will bring pride to the region,” said Wheaton.

Yao-Fen You, Assistant Curator of European Sculpture & Decorative Arts at the Detroit Institute of Arts, will lecture on the “Intersections in 19th and 20th Century American and European Figurative Bronze Sculpture” at the Museum Monday, April 6 at 4 p.m.

The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free of charge. For more information on the Museum and exhibition, go to marshallfredericks.org or call 989-964-7125.
