That’s what Chris Lawshaw did on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 2:45pm in front of Marshall Fredericks’s The Poet: Lord Byron sculpture that stands near the bell tower facing the Arbury Fine Arts Center. Chris planned the surprise event because he and his fiancée, Sharla Krasun, are fans of Fredericks’s sculpture and the aesthetic venue provided just the right atmosphere. While reciting a romantic Lord Byron poem to Sharla, Chris proposed. In case you’re wondering, she did say yes. The best of wishes to this awesome couple!

    45. 45. 2013 IMLS Grant In September, the Museum received a $25,296 Museums for America grant to support collection stewardship activities from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This grant will enable the Museum to digitize 815 of Marshall Fredericks’s project drawings to make them widely available for research and education. Over the next year, project staff will photograph large format drawings, scan smaller drawings, and add these images to the existing digital library. The project will give art scholars, historians, students, and artists access to the drawings for research and education, enhancing understanding of the artist’s artistic process and development. Digitization will also protect fragile artistic material from excessive handling and resulting deterioration. The project concludes at the end of September 2014.
    46. 46. 2013 Museum Assessment Program (MAP) This year the Museum was selected to participate in the AAM’s Museum Assessment Program (MAP). MAP is a confidential, consultative process that helps museums strengthen operations, plan for the future, and meet standards through self-study and a site visit from an expert peer reviewer. The Museum participated in a Community Engagement Assessment, a program that assessed the Museum's understanding of and relationship with its various communities and conversely examined their perception of and experience with the Museum. A team of staff and board members oversaw the completion of the assessment. In June, Deborah Borrowdale-Cox, Director of Education at the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky, spent two days at the Museum conducting a site visit with members of the staff, Board of Advisors, University administration and the community. Following Ms. Borrowdale-Cox’s visit, the Museum received a written recommendations, which staff will use to formulate goals and strategies to enhance community outreach and form new collaborations while strengthening old ones.
    47. 47. 2013 Family and Justice Reliefs Restored In 1955, Marshall Fredericks was commissioned to design and cast five Family and Justice bronze reliefs for the probate court rooms in the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center (CAYMC) in Detroit, where they remain today. Four of the Family and Justice plaster reliefs were discovered in a storage area in the CAYMC in 2010 by a staff member of the Detroit-Wayne Joint Building Authority. Offered to the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum by the executive director and trustees of the Building Authority in March 2011, the Board accepted the gift into the Museum collection shortly thereafter. A $12,000 grant from the Alden and Vada Dow Family Foundations for the restoration of the reliefs made it possible to contract with Scott Slocum, Marshall Fredericks’s long time assistant, to restore them. The following slides show three of the four restorations.
