MARSHALL FREDERICKS ONLINE EXHIBITIONS
Fredericks Meets Milles
In 1930 Marshall Fredericks traveled to Sweden to meet his mentor Carl Milles. He must have been on cloud 9 the entire trip. Marshall arrives in Sweden and goes to the school where Milles taught only to find out he has not taught there for 5 years. A watchman at the school then calls Milles on the phone and Fredericks talks to him. Milles invites him to his home and studio. Happens all the time, right?
I can't imagine calling any of my mentors or idols today, and having them invite me to come meet them. (Who to call first)... I am a big fan of the History Channel program Ancient Aliens. If the team of Ancient Astronaut Theorists invited me to talk about UFO's and mysterious places on the planet, I would be dumbfounded. I would go in a heartbeat, and tell my tale to the world.
Read Marshall Fredericks's account of meeting his mentor back in 1930.
