Freedman Plaza, New York, New York City, September 7, 2023-August 25, 2024, A 12-foot tall translucent and reflective magenta parabolic sculpture inhabits a park in a bustling city.

On September 7, 2023, Public Art Fund will unveil Fred Eversley’s mesmerizing 12-foot tall sculpture at the Doris C. Freedman Plaza in Central Park. Eversley’s powerful new magenta-tinted cast polyurethane work, titled Parabolic Light, will offer visitors a captivating experience of perceiving the surrounding environment, others, and themselves through the artist’s “lens”. Simultaneously reflective and transparent, the luminescent parabolic form—a tapered cylinder—will serve as a focal point of serenity, transcendence, and the exploration of new dimensions and perspectives. The exhibition reflects Public Art Fund’s ongoing commitment to creating public exhibition opportunities for advanced career artists and artists of color, particularly those who may not have received widespread recognition earlier in their careers. Eversley’s presentation represents not only his first public sculpture in New York, but also the first outdoor placement of the artist’s large-scale polyurethane resin works.
