Free the Bear!

Many remember Northland Mall very fondly, including The Boy and Bear sculpture by Marshall Fredericks. When Northland closed, The Boy and Bear was slated for auction.

The City of Southfield intervened to keep this important piece of history-- and art --here in Southfield. The Southfield Library has now offered a permanent home for this sculpture.

With your support, The Boy and Bear will move to the Library. Your donation will establish a permanent fund for youth art programming, support local artists, and build cultural opportunities in our city. 

Please join us in continuing the legacy of this piece for generations!

Thank you!
