Frederick Douglass Sculpture
Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park
This bronze sculpture by Marc Andre Robinson, a Maryland Institute College of Art graduate, stands 6 feet tall and wide, and weights 1,100 lbs. Mr. Robinson declares, “My ideas for the Frederick Douglass sculpture are meant to reflect collaborative art production and to emphasize the actual process of understanding and making history. The permanence of the bronze will function for the Living Classroom Foundation (and the Douglass-Myers Museum) as a monument to the seriousness of the indelible commitment to Baltimore youth.”
