This event has ended.

Ed Love’s impact knows no bounds. His often controversial, always poignant sculptures and works on paper evoke a necessity for change. Using steel and West African iconography, his work stands for strength through resistance. From iconic exhibitions at the Corcoran, to his Guggenheim Fellowship and his professorship at Howard University’s school of Art, Love influenced countless generations of young artists.

In the 1970s and 80s, commissioned by the city of DC, Ed Love placed his sculptures in parks throughout Washington. A chrome sculpture of a man being lynched hung above the federal courthouse in Washington DC until newspaper articles and protesters had it removed.

Love and other like-minded sculptors will be the focus of an exhibition titled “LA Blacksmith” at the California African American Museum opening in September. His work has been exhibited at The Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Studio Museum in Harlem, The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Afro-American Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and The Dallas Museum of Art. This will be his second solo exhibition at Kravets|Wehby Gallery.
