Fred Eversley, 50 Years an Artist: Light & Space & Energy features a survey of the artist’s work representing an extraordinary fifty-year career. Eversley, trained as an engineer, began making his polyester resin sculptures with an aim to “create kinetic art without using kinetic elements such as mechanical movement or artificial light changes.” Eversley’s strong interest in energy has led to further creations that utilize wind current to create dynamic acrylic cast forms. This retrospective exhibition featuring the works of Fred Eversley, an important African American sculptor and innovator, will coincide with William & Mary’s 50th-anniversary of the first residential African American students. Interestingly, as the artist has pointed out to us, the dates of desegregation at William & Mary in September 1967 is the exact month and year that he embarked on his exceptional career as an artist.

Admission is free to Museum members, W&M faculty, staff, and students, as well as children under twelve. Admission is $10.00 for the general public.
