Wexler Gallery (Philadelphia) presented Street Shrine 1: A Notorious Story, by Robert Lugo at Design Miami 2019. The installation features two large funeral urns and a ceramic teddy bear.
Lugo is a teacher, a poet, a social activist and a potter. He is from Philadelphia and started as a street artist before moving into ceramics. Wexler Gallery also showed work by him at Expo Chicago 2019.
This booth demonstrated a unified design by the artist, rather than the collection of pieces that were at Expo Chicago. It is a step beyond.
