Sponsoring an event or program is a great, 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 art in the Great Lakes Bay Region. Please consider these sponsorship opportunities:
Annually, the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum brings three exhibitions by well-known Michigan, national and international artists to its galleries. Presenting sponsors provide critical funding for the fulfillment of this important element of our mission. Presenting Sponsorships are available for:
Kids Discover Art Day
Jazz in the Garden series
Saints and Sinners Gala Benefit
Each year the Museum hosts one of the BEST events in the Great Lakes Bay Region, Saints, Sinners and… All proceeds from this event support the Museum’s educational and exhibition programs.
The 2013 event: Saints, Sinners and ’63, on October 4, will celebrate the fabulous 60s.
Transportation Subsidy Program
You would be astounded to know how many teachers are unable to take their students on field trips because funding is severely limited. The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is able to provide transportation subsidies to schools, thanks to generous sponsorship donations. As a result the number of students who come to the Museum has increased 50% since we began the transportation subsidy program. A $1,800 sponsorship makes it possible for us to subsidize 20 trips, bringing 800 students to the Museum.
Summer Art Camp
Did you ever go to summer camp? If you did, you know how rewarding, and fun, it is. Kids who attend summer art camp at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum enjoy the opportunity to create sculptures with modeling compound, plaster sand-cast faces, African papier-mâché masks, tetrahedron kites and their own T-shirt design with three-dimensional paints, under the tutelage of SVSU art education majors.
