One of the great ways to support the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is to be a program or event sponsor. Sponsorships are essential to every nonprofit organization, and the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum has many such opportunities. Every sponsor receives special recognition in printed materials, in press releases, and on the museum’s web site. Here are some of the programs and events you can sponsor.
Annually, the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum brings three exhibitions by well-known Michigan, national and international artists to its galleries. Title sponsors are essential because they underwrite the cost of the exhibit. The names of sponsors of $2,500 or more are boldly displayed on the gallery wall for the exhibition’s duration. A title sponsor can be $2,500 to $20,000.
Saints and Sinners Gala Benefit
The Museum annually 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.
You would be astounded to know how many teachers can’t take their students on field trips because it cost too much. The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is able to provide transportation subsidies to schools, thanks to generous sponsorship funds. The number of students who come to the museum on field trips has increased since we began the transportation subsidy program. A $1,500 sponsorship makes it possible for us to subsidize 20 trips, or 400 students to the museum. Summer Art Camps
Did you ever go to summer camp? If you did, you know how rewarding it can be. Kids who attend summer art camp at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum have the best teachers (SVSU art education majors) and have the opportunity to create sculptures with modeling compound, plaster sand-cast faces, African paper Mache masks, tetrahedron kites and their own T-shirt design with three-dimensional paints.
