Award History
As a result of a generous gift from Mrs. Gene Schreckengost, The Attleboro Arts Museum is the fortunate recipient of Viktor Schreckengost’s 1933 original Mangbetu Child; Bronze Casting #2. This exceptional piece (pictured below) was on display at the Museum during the Viktor Schreckengost Legacy Exhibition (March 21 – May 16, 2008) and serves as a strong symbol of Vik’s talent and range as an artist.

As a salute to Viktor Schreckengost (pictured left), The Attleboro Arts Museum has instated The Viktor Schreckengost Mangbetu Award honoring Viktor’s contributions as an educator and remarkable accomplishments as an artist and designer.  Learn more about Viktor Schreckengost.


2017 Mangbetu Award Recipient: Mary Moore

Artist Statement:
My name is Mary Moore and I am 11 years old.  I am a fifth grader at St. John’s the Evangelist School in Attleboro, MA.  I draw mostly anime, but I love pretty much anything that is creative.  My other interests are playing sports, reading, history, chemistry and animals.  I especially love Pugs!  I also love watching the Celtics with my dad, scented candles and collecting lip gloss.  I have been taking art classes at the Attleboro Arts Museum for over 3 years; attending their summer art weeks, classes and one-day workshops.  My favorite season is fall because I love all the colors.  It gives me inspiration when I have artist’s block.  I have been trying to get into Realism, although I have not gotten the hang of it yet. I would like to continue taking art classes and hopefully one day go to the Rhode Island School of Design.  – Mary Moore
