This Museum space is beautiful. It has a wonderful permanent collection of the artist's work and a model of his working space as well as rotating exhibitions. Excellent and friendly staff.

No need to be an art aficionado to appreciate all the beautiful sculptures both inside and out. It's the most beautiful when the fountains are running. A must see if you're on SVSU's campus!

I actually was involved in the construction of the building and worked with Marshall Fredericks to light each sculpture. I still find it an amazing place!

This is a fun, inexpensive couples date idea. You'll see giant sculptures , that's a given but you don't have to be an art buff to appreciate it. We spent most of the time taking silly pictures with the works. Get Yogurt Yeti after.

There are beautiful sculptures outside on the grounds at Saginaw Valley State University as well as inside the building. Some of these sculptures you will find throughout Michigan like downtown Detroit or up in northern Michigan, Indian River.

This sculpture museum, located on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University is simply beautiful and worth a visit if you are in the area. The staff is very knowledgeable and the facility is gorgeous.
