CMOA invites educators for an exclusive gathering with renowned sculptor Melvin Edwards. Join him among his works in «20/20: The Studio Museum in Harlem and Carnegie Museum of Art» for personal conversation about his life and creative process. Enjoy refreshments and networking, and stay afterward for Edwards's public talk.

Edwards’s work reflects his engagement with the history of race, labor, violence, as well as with themes of African Diaspora. Making welding his preferred medium, his compositions are studies in abstraction and minimalism. Edwards creates sculptures by welding metal objects such as tools, knives, hooks, and machine parts, to construct objects distinguished by formal simplicity and powerful materiality.

Participants eligible for one Act 48 hour. Light snacks and refreshments are included. This event will meet in the museum's board room, located near our Forum Gallery.

This event is part of CMOA's Empowered Educators series.
