Don't miss the debut of the larger-than-life bronze statue of
fashion designer Claire McCardell!

On this day, the monumental likeness of the Frederick native who became an iconic fashion designer will stand tall--for the first time!--on her granite pedestal overlooking Carroll Creek Linear Park in downtown Frederick, Maryland.

You're in for a very special experience as The Frederick Art Club unveils

this important addition to the community's public art landscape.


Come celebrate the designer who changed the way women dress in the

1930s, '40s and '50s and whose innovations continue to influence design to this day.

Learn why Claire matters to women's history. Meet the sculptor.  

Enjoy the garden surrounding the statue.

Watch as the drape falls and Claire's image is

revealed for the first time!

Rain or shine!

The ceremony will be livestreamed! Stay tuned for the link here!
