UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. (AP) — The Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum is kicking off a 5-month, $1 million project to create a new entrance and sculpture garden.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the entrance and the JoAnne and Donald Petersen Sculpture Garden is planned for Friday at the museum at Saginaw Valley State University.

The event was to include the unveiling of a Fredericks' sculpture that was cast shortly after he died in 1998, but that was part is postponed by weather. Commissioned by Scott J. Seligman, the "Black Elk: Homage to the Great Spirit" bronze is more than 12 feet tall and is on loan for display.

A fall dedication is planned for the sculpture garden, which will include the Michigan sculptor's work as well as botanical beds and walkways.
