Put Claire on a Pedestal
At Carroll Creek Linear Park
The Frederick Art Club's original fundraising goal for the Claire McCardell Project was $209,000. Thanks to the generosity of many supporters, total donations as of September 2020 met that goal and will underwrite all expenses to create Claire's image in clay, install the bronze sculpture on a granite pedestal and accompany it with a donor recognition plaque and wayside exhibit that tells the designer's story. The club has subsequently raised an additional $55,000 for the design and installation of an elegant, fully landscaped and hardscaped garden to surround and enhance the sculpture.
