"Beverly Pepper: Palingenesis 1962-2012" is a new exhibit that opens to the public today, May 25 at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.
The exhibit traces Beverly Pepper's work in metal through her five-decade career. It will feature more than 20 works in a variety of metals including steel, aluminum, iron, stainless steel, and Cor-ten steel. It's Pepper's largest museum presentation in recent years.
Pepper emerged on the arts scene in 1962 when she and Alexander Calder and David Smith were invited to create outdoor sculptures for the famed exhibition, "Festival of Two Worlds". Pepper is considered one of America's greatest living sculptors.
Different programs will be available throughout the duration of the exhibition, including walk-throughs with the Chief Curator and staff members, as well as a demonstration event.
The exhibition runs through August 26.
