Save the Date! The Zimmerli is pleased to announce that the retrospective Melvin Edwards: Five Decades opens on September 1. With a career that spans crucial periods of upheaval and change in American culture and society, the artist's remarkable body of work has not only redefined the modernist tradition of welded sculpture, but powerfully addresses African identity and universal ideals, such as freedom and individualism. In addition, the exhibition’s stop at the Zimmerli represents a triumphant return for the artist to New Brunswick: Edwards was a professor at Rutgers from 1972 to 2002, teaching sculpture, drawing, and an introduction to Third World artists. His sculpture Education Is an Open Book (1987) is located on the Livingston Campus as part of the university’s public sculpture collection.
