Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring an event or program is a highly visible way to support the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum.  Aligning your brand or putting your name on temporary exhibitions, educational programs, or one of our popular events provides recognition in printed materials, in press releases, and on the Museum’s website, while making a statement that you care about the importance of the arts in the Great Lakes Bay Region. Please consider these sponsorship opportunities:

Exhibition Sponsorships

Annually, the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum brings three or four temporary art exhibitions by well-known Michigan, national and international artists, and humanities exhibitions like Mingled Visions: Images from the North American Indian Collection by Edward S. Curtis to the Museum. Presenting sponsors provide critical funding for the fulfillment of this important element of our mission. Consider being a sponsor of one of the upcoming exhibitions that you can read about here.

Transportation Subsidy Program

rbjse-2016-1

You would be astounded to know how many teachers are unable to take their students on field trips because funding is so limited.  The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is able to provide transportation subsidies to schools, thanks to generous sponsorship donations.  Because of generous sponsors, the number of students who come to the Museum has increased 50% since we began the transportation subsidy program a few years ago. A $1,800 sponsorship makes it possible for us to subsidize 20 trips, bringing 800 students to the Museum.
