Pop Art: The 1960s and Beyond

Pop Art which flourished during the 1960s was radical in its every day subject matter and its large images and very bright coloration. Artists were looking at comics, billboards, advertisements, and product labels. Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg and others made decisions about what constituted art that would have profound implications for the course of American art. Theirs was one of the very first periods that came to grips with the influence of mass media on life and culture.

Dr. Marcie Slepian has an A.B. in Art from Brown University and a Ph.D. from Yale University in the History of Art. She has been a local art educator for over 30 years.
