In honor of artist Viktor Schreckengost's 100th birthday on June 26, the Hood Museum of Art is displaying his watercolor, Hurricane Still Life, through June. Schreckengost was a driving force behind modern industrial design throughout the 20th century who also created a significant body of work as a sculptor, ceramacist, and painter. His work spans a remarkably wide range, including the automotive, ceramic, furniture, recreational, military, print production, and electronics fields. Some of his works, such as Jazz Bowl, are considered seminal creations that capture the life and history of the United States.
