Form Foundations: Figure Studies by Marshall M. Fredericks Virtual Exhibition
Online through March 27, 2021
Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum
University Center, Michigan

This virtual exhibition features twenty-five newly conserved Marshall Fredericks figure study drawings. Conserved by the Midwest Art Conservation Center with grant support from the Institute of Museums and Library Services, viewers see before and after photos of the drawings, and how the conservation process brings new life to these important figure studies.

The virtual exhibition includes a 360-degree view of several of Fredericks’s figure study sculptures for the viewer to participate by creating their own drawings; a virtual interactive 360-degree environment in which they can move about the exhibition, read labels, explore the drawings, view Marshall’s drawing table complete with the actual tools he used, and learn about the art and science of conservation.
