The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum invites artists working in sculpture to submit work for the “2020 Regional Biennial Juried Sculpture Exhibition.” 

In 2008, the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum established a sculpture biennial exhibition to support working artists. Now in its 12th year, The Museum invites artists working in sculpture to submit work for the “2020 Regional Biennial Juried Sculpture Exhibition.” The exhibition will be held at the Museum June 6 through August 29, 2020. “It’s important that the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum and Saginaw Valley State University support living artists,” states Director, Megan McAdow,“ and hosting a biennial sculpture exhibition is an excellent way to accomplish that goal.” 

The Museum invites all living artists working in sculpture who have completed training or formal studies and reside within 200 miles of the Marshall Fredericks Sculpture Museum to apply. Their Sculpture must be entirely original, completed within the last five years, and created by the person submitting it. The deadline for submission is April 3, 2020. The Merit awards awarded by the juror include a $2,500 first place, $1,250 second place, $850 third place, and $400 fourth place. 

The exhibition juror will be Stephanie James, curator of modern and contemporary art with a focus on art of the African Diaspora. She holds an MA in art history from Wayne State University and a BFA in drawing, along with teaching certification, from Eastern Michigan University. She is the Curator and Collection Educator for the Mott-Warsh Collection, Flint, MI—one of the largest privately-owned collections of African American art in the United States. Prior to her work with the Mott-Warsh Collection, she worked at the Detroit Institute of Arts for nearly 16 years, serving as assistant curator of the General Motors Center for African American Art (2002-2009) and in various appointments in the museum’s education department (1993-2002). Additionally, she has contracted with Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of African American History and Culture as a member of their “Save Our African American Treasures” team of curators and conservators. Ms. James has organized numerous exhibitions, most recently “The Essential Self: Meditations on the Politics of Identity” at the Detroit Artists Market (2015).
