Sculptor, Don Everhart, will share the images and stories behind his nearly forty years of creating coins and sculpture with Penn's Village members and guests on November 29.
In 1980, Don Everhart left the Franklin Mint to pursue a freelance career. During this period, his work included figurines, plates, coins, and medals for Walt Disney, Tiffany, the Royal Norwegian Mint, and the British Royal Mint. Don then worked at the US Mint from 2004-2017 where he created designs for numerous coins and medals, notably the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins. His designs appear on three of the 50 State Quarters coins honoring Nevada, New Mexico, and Hawaii. His work is included in several permanent collections, including: The Smithsonian Institution, The British Museum, The American Numismatic Society, and The National Sculpture Society. Everhart has received numerous commissions. Most notable of these is Georgetown University’s Sports Hall of Fame, a 24-piece bronze installation.
Please join us on November 29 at 2:00 PM in the MacColl Room at The First Presbyterian Church, 201 S. 21st Street (entrance on 21st Street). The building is handicapped accessible. Kindly let us know in advance if you need this.
