The archives of world-renowned artist/designer Viktor Schreckengost now have a permanent home at CSU, and part of East 17th Street is to be named in his honor.
The archives of CIA’s 1929 graduate and faculty emeritus Viktor Schreckengost were transferred to Cleveland State University’s Michael Schwartz Library this summer, and the adjacent section of East 17th Street is to be re-named “Viktor Schreckengost Way.”
On September 30 the archives will be dedicated with a ceremony and reception. The dedication is hosted by CSU, CIA, the District of Design, and American Da Vinci, LLC, the entity dedicated to preserving and promoting Schreckengost’s work through exhibitions, reproductions, and new product licensing.
A fine artist and prolific product designer, Schreckengost founded the country’s first modern, college-level industrial design program at CIA in 1933 and taught at the Institute for more than 70 years. In 2006 he was awarded the National Medal of Arts, the country’s highest cultural honor. He died in 2008 at 101.
A small exhibition of works from the archives is on display this semester in the Thomas F. Campbell PhD Exhibition Gallery on the first floor of CSU’s Urban Affairs building. Call 216.687.7495 for gallery hours. The Schwartz library’s special collections are available to the public for research and educational uses. For special collections hours, call 216.687.2449.
