Freda Koblick, artist and designer was 90

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

imageIn 1980 a wealthy friend of then-North Beach art denizen Freda Koblick bought her a former synagogue in the Mission as a place to live and work in exchange for her collaboration in converting it to residential lofts. She lived there for the rest of her life. The artist and designer known for introducing cast acrylic as a medium for sculpture died Saturday of renal failure and diabetes. Kenneth Baker writes the obituary in the Chronicle.

Add: Koblick’s brother, David, her lone living relative, died of cancer the day after her death, at age 95.
