Known for his mastery of ceramics, Lugo's artworks consist of vessels that incorporate elements from traditional European and Asian decorative arts, combined with iconography derived from Afro-Latino heritage and Hip Hop culture. "Put Yourself in the Picture," Roberto Lugo's first monumental sculpture in milled foam, was created on-site during his residency. Visitors have the opportunity to walk through the vessel using a viewing platform, enhancing their interactive experience. Additionally, the gallery features a drop-in maker space where visitors can engage with clay and explore its materiality
This significant artwork was made possible through a collaboration with The Seward Johnson Atelier and the Digital Atelier, providing Lugo with a new avenue for artistic expression on a scale that would be challenging to achieve with traditional clay techniques.
