Pop Art in America
May 30 - August 30, 2015
Pop Art emerged in London in the mid-1950s and in New York during the late 1950s and by the late 1960s, it was the dominant avant-garde style. Artists in the movement attempted to target a broad audience by using images that were easy to recognize and understand. Drawing from consumer packaging and borrowing images from popular films and TV programs, Pop Art, with its commercial appropriation and use of bold colors, revolutionized the way we look and think about art.
This exhibition, drawn from the collection of the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, includes works by the artists central to the American Pop Art movement: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Larry Rivers, Jim Dine, and Robert Indiana.
