Two Bears


One of Fredericks' most endearing sculptures, "Two Bears", is a testament to the artist's desire to make art that warms the heart and invites the participation of its viewers.

Fredericks once said of "Two Bears", "I love animals of all kinds and I did the group, basically, for children. A child's reaction to a sculpture is such an honest reaction; they see through anything that's superficial."

As the life-size "Two Bears" was installed at the Sterling Heights, Michigan Public Library, Fredericks told his audience of an important objective for this work. "When the noses of the bears are shiny," he said, "I'll know I have accomplished my goal."

Often erroneously called Mother Bear and Baby, castings of Two Bears are also located at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and Interlochen Center for the Arts in northern Michigan, where it has become a treasured monument for young musicians, parents and visitors.

Bronze castings are also located at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan and the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University near Saginaw, Michigan.

This bronze sculpture was cast in limited number editions of 15 after Mr. Fredericks' death in 1998. "Two Bears" measures 16 1/2" x 14" x 8" and rests on a black marble base with a brown patina.
