Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the verbal and visual history of Pop Art, and analyze the foundational works and artists that have come to define the modern art style with a focus on those from Roy Lichtenstein.
- A discussion of the definition of Pop Art: the idea that everyday objects, motifs, and ideas from our commercial culture could be legitimate areas of artistic study and exploration
- The origins of the Pop Art movement, and how its signature look of bold primary colors, oversized printing dots, and graphic faces and heroic figures took shape
- The significant role Andy Warhol played in Roy Lichtenstein’s early career breakthrough
- Why Mel Ramos deserves the very criticism that’s always been leveled at Lichtenstein
- How works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist fit in Pop Art’s story
