This year has brought new challenges to the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum, but your support has provided the opportunity for us to face those challenges in fun and creative ways to better serve you, and our community.
Although the Museum has been temporarily closed since mid-March due to the pandemic, we have continued our mission through online exhibitions, artist talks, opening receptions, virtual tours, and fun art activities in addition to creating and delivering over 4,500 Art @ Home activity kits to community youth and Midland-area flood victims. Your support has made this possible!
In the midst of uncertainty, we have been working hard to provide future virtual exhibitions and programs for you to take part in from the comfort of your own home. Upcoming exhibitions, “Form Foundations: Figure Studies by Marshall Fredericks,” “Hip Hop Icons,” and “Michigan Modern: An Architecture Legacy” await you in the new year! Your donation will help to raise much-needed dollars for the continued preservation, education and exhibitions work at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum!
A fun way to donate this year is through the Marshall M. Fredericks

What is Mail Art? The concept of Mail Art has been documented back to the 1950s and has been used throughout the decades for artists and creatives to share their work without having to travel or meet in person. This practice is the perfect fit for these times of a pandemic. Check out this article for more on the history of Mail Art.
