Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park Events
Now thru August 25 - Exhibition: A National Treasure: Fred Meijer, His Collection and Legacy Sculpture
Fred Meijer was deeply interested in cultural endeavors and history, and had a long interest in sculpture. In particular, he was initially attracted to historical and figurative statuary in bronze. He began collecting in the mid-1980s according to his own interests. His views broadened in the following years. In 1999, he declared his dream to build a "world-class" sculpture collection, opening a door for collecting beyond his initial personal aesthetic with the betterment and enjoyment of the public in mind. Today, the collection is hailed as among the finest in the world. This exhibition explores Meijer’s legacy through a series of eleven chronological chapters. Exhibition activities are below.
