The Walters Art Museum

"Throughout 1 West Mount Vernon Place, known to many as Hackerman House, visitors can encounter the vibrant, enthralling work of contemporary ceramicist Roberto Lugo. The Walters Art Museum commissioned Lugo to create works for the opening of 1 West that would resonate both with the museum’s collections of historic ceramics and with the stories being told about the people associated with 1 West. Now, three of those works have become part of the Walters’ permanent collection, making them the most contemporary artworks in the museum’s holdings. This fall, the Board of the Trustees of the Walters Art Museum approved the acquisition of Frederick Douglass Food Stamp Jar, Set of Six Dinner Plates, and Slave Ship Potpourri Boat." - The Walters Art Museum
