Fred was a revered artist and UW-Madison professor of Art Metal. We are fortunate to have one of his pieces at the Jewish Federation of Madison office—the mezuzah he created, which is affixed to the doorpost of the Max Weinstein Jewish Community Building entrance.

May Fred's memory be for a blessing.
