Melvin Edwards' work is highlighted in the exhibition Passages: Sculptures and Prints by Melvin Edwards, 1989-2017, at the Kingsborough Art Museum, Brooklyn, New York.

Sculptor Melvin Edwards has redefined the medium through powerful works that speak to American and African history and culture, to the Civil Rights Movement, and to the poetic beauty and strength of the human spirit.  Best known for his Lynch Fragments series, Edwards also created the monumental work Passage for Kingsborough Community College in 1990.  Please join us in welcoming this prolific--and profound--artist back to campus through this selection of sculptures and prints from Alexander Gray Associates, New York, and Dieu Donné, Brooklyn.
