MONDAY, JUNE 7 @ 7:00pm EST:
Why has Pop Art — a movement initially ridiculed by art critics and historians — outlasted them all to become, arguably, modern art’s most “modern” art?
And why is it that the works of the premier American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein continue to elicit strong reactions from both his fans and his detractors almost 60 years later?
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the history of Pop Art, and, with a focus on those from Lichtenstein, analyze the foundational works and artists that have come to define its style.
Led by comic book-style illustrator and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), our virtual deep dive will make you look at Pop Art, and the works of Lichtenstein, as if seeing them for the first time!
