Description

Artist Roberto Lugo reflected on Atlanta’s history in creating this bold homage to the city’s hip-hop culture. The concept for Lugo’s punch bowl was inspired by the New Yorker (Jazz) Bowl (1931) Viktor Schreckengost designed to celebrate New York City and the vibrant Harlem jazz scene. An example of Schreckengost’s bowl is on view in the American art galleries on the third level of the Stent Family Wing.
