Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum Conservation Assessment of Drawings

A conservation assessment of select drawings of Marshall M. Fredericks, one of the most prolific American sculptors of the 20th century. Fredericks accepted more than 500 commissions in a 70-year career, and his sculpture can be seen in outdoor settings across the country and abroad. The museum has identified 132 life-figure drawings that record Fredericks's creative and design process, of which 20 high-priority works will be examined in detail.

This grant would support a conservation assessment of select drawings housed at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum, providing detailed condition surveys and detailed treatment proposals to identify specific conservation needs and to achieve funding for conservation activities that will lead to eventual display of these artistically and historically important documents.
