Title: Lobster on a Marble Tabletop: The Remix!
Location: 800 block of Franklin Street
Artist: Carly Dellger
This utility box was part of a 2021 collaboration between the Rahr-West Art Museum Public Arts Committee and Manitowoc Public Utility.Ten utility boxes in downtown Manitowoc were painted by local artists with designs based on works from the Museum’s collection.
Artist Dellger commented, “I chose Lobster on a Marble Tabletop by Levi Wells Prentice. I remember being struck by the painting when I first visited the Rahr– I love the rich reds and greens, and I think the subject is really unique. I thought this painting would translate really well with my painting style, which leans toward bright colors, graphic lines, and high contrast.”
