We visited on a whim since we know little about sculptures or sculptors. This museum is amazing -inside and out. Taught us a lot and its great to know Frederick's work can also be seen all over the US and the world. Detroit (ever hear of the Spirit of Detroit?), Meijer Gardens, Chicago.......

SVSU has a hidden treasure - The Marsh M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum. It has Fredericks' work room and so many of his extraordinary sculptures. The sculptures are in bronze and plaster and wood. They have detailed explanations of their origins and comments from Fredericks. The museum itself and its grounds beautifully house the works of art.

Fredericks was a sculptor who worked from the 1950s to the early 90s, mostly in bronze for large scale public pieces. The museum contains a large and representative number of original and restored plaster casts of his works from throughout a varied and apparently quite successful career. There are also a handful of his bronze castings in a small sculpture garden outdoors, and a replica of his workshop and a good explanation of how he worked to produce his pieces. All-in-all, a very satisfying experience. The museum is on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University and is co-located with a small art gallery that features traveling exhibitions.

The grounds are beautiful. The talent Marshall Fredericks had is truly amazing! I enjoy walking through the museum over and over... There is much history about the man who sculpted. His wife was generous to have donated his art work to the museum.

Enjoyed walking through the beautiful garden and sculpture walk. Went inside to register my car and found even more sculptures and an area explain how the sculptures are made. Really enjoyed the special exhibit on JFK.
