Viktor Schreckengost, RIP 1906-2008

Just thought that everyone should know that he died on Saturday.


Excerpts from the article:

Viktor Schreckengost, a Cleveland artist, teacher and industrial designer who transformed America through his own work and that of the generations of students he taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art, died Saturday night at age 101.

“Chances are that almost every adult in America has ridden in, drunk out of, eaten off of, mowed their lawns with, sat on, placed a call with, lit the night with, hid their hooch in or had an arm or leg replaced with something created by Viktor Schreckengost,” Nowacek (his stepson) said in an interview in 2005.

Thanks for posting this. I was only at Cleveland for a semester, but Viktor made a big imprint… as he tended to do on everyone he taught. He was a Designer… with a capital D.
