Melvin Edwards: Five Decades
Library Shelf Location 18.EDWA
Publication Date 2015

Over the past five decades, New York-based sculptor Melvin Edwards (born 1937) has produced a remarkable body of work redefining the modernist tradition of welded sculpture. Working primarily in welded steel, Edwards is perhaps best known for his Lynch Fragments, small-scale reliefs born of the turmoil of the Civil Rights Movement. Beyond the Lynch Fragments, Edwards' oeuvre encompasses larger sculptures, installations, public projects, drawings, studies and prints.
Published on the occasion of a major retrospective originated by Nasher Sculpture Center, Melvin Edwards: Five Decades presents a richly illustrated examination of Edwards' career, featuring more than 90 works and numerous unpublished photographs from the artist's archive.
