  Generations: The School of Viktor Schreckengost
3/17 – 4/14/06 , Wed. - Fri 10-5 & Sat 12-4;  ph. 216-721-9020 http://www.artistsarchives.org/

The Artists Archives is proud to take part in the exhibitions and celebrations commemorating the centennial of Viktor Schreckengost’s birth with an unusual show of original drawings and objects from the collection of the prominent Cleveland-based design firm Nottingham – Spirk.
Schreckengost has been a seminal figure in his own right in contemporary American design since the 1930’s. As an educator he has impacted countless students, influencing three generations of commercial and industrial designers.

“The School of Viktor Schreckengost” explores one corner of that ever-widening sphere of influence, displaying a selection of Viktor’s original studies and objects designed for mass consumption, plus a selection of familiar objects created by seven of his former students – familiar because they have become part of our daily lives.

Opening Reception March 17, 2006 from 5-8pm. This event is free and open to the public, RSVP unnecessary but please feel free to call 216-721-9020 for further details. Please note that across the hall The Sculpture Center’s annual On a Pedastel show, 3/10 – 4/14/06 was selected this year by Viktor Schreckengost. Together the two exhibits offer a unique chance to glimpse the mind of one of the past century’s most celebrated designers.
New hours, during exhibitions only: Wed. – Fri. 10am – 4pm, Sat. 12 – 4pm, admission free and open to public. Groups welcome: off-hour gallery tours can be arranged by appointment, if necessary. AAWR is an independent entity, self-sustaining through a fee charged to Archived Artists for storage space utilized. It is also supported through grants, contributions, and fundraising activities. Selections of Archived work are shown at various corporate locations throughout the region, thus another source of revenue is the fee charged for such corporate memberships.
