A favorite of all time – Fred Eversley

A true inspiration and one of our favorite artists – Fred Eversley.
From Guggenheim to Whitney his art is in the permanent collection of 35 museums and he has executed 20 large-scale public artwork commissions.

Eversley was honored with the “Lorenzo di Medici” 1st prize for sculpture at the 2001 Biennale Internazionale Dell’ Arte Contemporanea di Firenze in Florence, Italy.

Starting out in the 1960’s, he differed from the Minimalist influence at that time and sought to express his concerns about energy, and the possibility of transforming solar energy into electrical power. This lead to a lifetime exploration of the parabola and parabolic shapes as energy trapping structures.
