Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that a sculpture by John Wilson (sculptor) will be installed on the lawn of the National Center of Afro-American Artists in Roxbury. Wilson created the sculpture to mark the 350th anniversary of the black presence in Boston. Jones notes that the sculpture is seven-feet high and is named Eternal Presence. Jones interviews Wilson and Elma Lewis (Artistic Director, National Center of Afro-American Artists) about the sculpture. Wilson says that the sculpture is evocative and confrontational. Wilson adds that he is interested in hearing feedback about the sculpture. Jones notes that Wilson grew up in Roxbury. Jones' report is accompanied by shots of the sculpture and by footage of Lewis addressing spectators in a gallery of the Center. Jones' report also features shots of the exterior of the National Center of Afro-American Artists.
