Help the Museum Protect a Vulnerable Work of Art on #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018.
Join us as the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum works to raise $5,000 towards the restoration of Marshall Fredericks’s 16-foot tall Youth in the Hands of God Searching for Knowledge metal relief. Let’s come together to safeguard this important work of art that was created by Michigan sculptor Marshall Fredericks.
Youth in the Hands of God Searching for Knowledge was originally created in 1956 for the Dallas (Texas) Public Library. When the Dallas Public Library moved to a new building many years later, the relief was purchased by Saginaw Valley State University in May 1993 and brought to the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum for installation. For the past 25 years, the relief has hung on the north facade of the Museum. Today Youth in the Hands of God Searching for Knowledge is in need of structural restoration. The relief will be removed from the facade and transported to a facility by Wolverine Stone Company where Venus Bronze Works will conduct the restorative work. Once it is fully restored, Wolverine Stone Company will reinstall it on the museum facade.
