Robert Lugo at UConn: Through Dec. 1

The Contemporary Art Galleries at UConn, 830 Bolton Road in Storrs, presents “New Life: A Table for Everyone,” an exhibit of works in porcelain, earthenware, china paints, ceramic decals, drawing, and painting by Robert Lugo, until Dec. 1.Lugo explains his inspiration: “Although my history is filled with adversity, racism and sheer bad luck; I celebrate these moments in my work, I could not make art without the experiences they have offered to me. The act of making pots is a similar process of transforming the ground we walk on into something we eat from; we prize; we search all day for the perfect spot to put it on display. In many ways, this relationship from tragedy to triumph is a metaphor for my life’s story.”
