Mel Edwards
Vision and Purpose I, II, III, IV

Through a partnership with Raven Fine Art Editions, several artists have spent time at 13th and Locust Streets pulling inspiration from HSP’s collections. We are excited to announce that the first print in this artistic undertaking is now available. With the support of Raven Fine Art Editions founder, renowned artist and HSP Councilor, Curlee R. Holton, artist Mel Edwards has created Vision and Purpose I, II, III & IV, a serigraph. Raven has produced a series of 60 prints over four editions, each with different coloring. Edwards focused his work on HSP’s collections related to Father Divine (1877-1965), a religious leader and founder of the International Peace Mission.
