Thanks to the many donors who helped

place Claire on a pedestal

At Carroll Creek Linear Park

Future site of the Claire McCardell statue, to be unveiled October 17, 2021.
Find out more about the ceremony here.


Thanks to the generosity of many supporters, the Frederick Art Club met its initial fundraising goal in fall 2020. Gifts at that point covered all expenses to create Claire's image in clay and then bronze, install the statue on a granite pedestal, and accompany it with a donor recognition plaque and wayside exhibit that tells the designer's story. The club subsequently raised funding sufficient to design and install an elegant, fully landscaped and hardscaped garden to surround and enhance the sculpture. Donors are listed here in alphabetical order.
