When Art Went POP! How Andy Warhol & Friends Changed Art Forever
First Wednesday Art Talk: The Pop explosion made art fun again!
The cultural world exploded in many ways in the early sixties, with visual arts in the vanguard.
Learn how art moved from the serious, emotional, and virtuoso style of the Abstract Expressionists to the flash, dash, and irreverence of Andy Warhol’s soup cans and movie stars, Roy Lichtenstein’s comics, and Claus Oldenburg’s soft hamburgers.
It’s a change that has endured, affecting what we see in art museums and galleries today.
Independent Docent/Speaker: Avril Angevine
(Although this talk coincides with the upcoming exhibit at SFMOMA: Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again (May 18-Sept 2, 2019) the speaker does not represent the museum.)
