Art Talk: Andy Warhol and Pop Art

Campbell’s soup cans, boxes of Brillo soap pads, gaudy touched-up photographs of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Mao Zedong...is this art? In the 1960s and 1970s, Andy Warhol turned against the highbrow art world and began to use elements from popular culture in his paintings, becoming the most famous artist associated with the movement known as Pop art. We’ll be viewing works by Warhol as well as works by other Pop artists  like Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Claes Oldenburg. All will be on a slideshow projection and our discussion will be completely informal, so no prior art knowledge is necessary. If you’d like to join us, please register at the Kennedy Information Desk or by calling (732) 463-1633, ext. 6.
