And All That Jazz! 

The Viktor Schreckengost Mangbetu Award Art Educator Group Exhibition 

Exhibition: June 2nd – 29th, 2022

Art Educator Recognition Ceremony: Thurs, June 16th from 5:30-6:30pm. Free and open to all.

Tuesday – Saturday from 10am-4pm

Since 2009, the Attleboro Arts Museum has presented the Viktor Schreckengost Mangbetu Award, an annual recognition granted to an outstanding AAM art student. Viktor’s legacy continues by saluting the arts achievement, commitment, and visual creativity within our Museum School. Student recipients have ranged in age since the launch, the youngest only 8 years old at the time of their exhibition. In 2019, the award program was expanded to honor teams of exhibiting students. Each group exhibit spotlighting one of Viktor’s areas of interest or an art media that he enjoyed working in. 

Viktor’s accomplishments as an artist and designer were many, but perhaps his greatest triumph was as an art educator.  He taught for over 70 years at the Cleveland Institute of Art until the age of 93 and successfully influenced and educated several generations of talented young students. In honor of Viktor’s life-long commitment to education we’re shifting the 2022 exhibition focus to illuminate those that provide the inspiration and encouragement behind each AAM budding maker and creative – our illustrious artist educators. 

AAM art educators who are currently teaching or have previously taught in the last year (since January 2021) were invited to submit one piece of original art that responds to “And All That Jazz!” – unique interpretations of Viktor Schreckengost’s acclaimed Jazz Bowl. The Jazz Bowl was originally designed for Eleanor Roosevelt as a gift for her husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt. In time, a small series of bowls were created and one is on view in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston as part of the Museum’s permanent collection. 

Twelve AAM art educators are participating in this group exhibition, and their artworks feature an exceptional twist on Viktor’s Jazz Bowl. Viewers will experience visual representations of the rich sounds, rhythms & colors of jazz music, graphic interpretations of instruments, personal storytelling and other expressions of the bustling nightlife, improv and energy of the roaring 1920’s.

Susan Bauer

Jackie Cabral 

Bill Clark

Sandy Coleman

Lisa Granata

Valerie Haggerty-Silva

Cristina Hajosy

As a result of a generous gift from Mrs. Gene Schreckengost, The Attleboro Arts Museum was the fortunate recipient of Viktor Schreckengost’s 1933 original Mangbetu Child; Bronze Casting #2. Museum visitors and friends will treasure this exceptional gift for years to come. It serves as a strong symbol of Vik’s talent and the great impact of the Viktor Schreckengost Legacy Exhibition (March 21st – May 16th, 2008) at the Attleboro Arts Museum. Mangbetu Child lead to the creation of the Viktor Schreckengost Mangbetu Award.  For more information about the Mangbetu Award program click here: https://attleboroartsmuseum.org/viktor-schreckengost-mangbetu-award/
