New sculpture at The Q

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

I was relaxing for a moment in Quintessence Hotel’s lobby yesterday, and my eyes landed on a particularly beautiful bronze sculpture of a koi. I mentioned it later in the day to Geoffrey Fieger, and he informed me that the sculptures of koi, as well as a dazzling monkey sculpture in the new restaurant extension were by the quite famous American sculptor, Marshall Fredericks (1908-1998). Fredericks worked continuously through the latter half of the 20th century, creating a stunning body of commissions as well as free-standing works, such as these. His estate donated the contents of his studio to create The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University in Saginaw, Michigan.
