Join us in welcoming ceramic artist Roberto Lugo to the Cincinnati Art Museum to hear him speak about his work and his upcoming residency and solo exhibition at the museum.
Roberto Lugo was raised in a neighborhood of Philadelphia marked by poverty, violence, and drug trafficking. At the age of 25, he enrolled in his first pottery class. Today, he leads the ceramic department at Temple University in Philadelphia, and his art resides in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, and other prestigious institutions, including the Cincinnati Art Museum. When he is not teaching or creating, Lugo returns to urban neighborhoods with a potter’s wheel emblazoned with the words, “This machine kills hate.” Taking his art to the street, he uses clay and his wheel to teach others how to throw pots, break down cultural and social biases, and encourage the possibility that anyone can choose and achieve their dreams.
Please join us for a reception with light bites following the lecture.
Free. Reservations required.
The annual Kreines lecture is presented by Mrs. Kenneth Kreines and the Decorative Arts Society of Cincinnati in memory of Dr. Kenneth Kreines.
