Pop Art Hour for the Arts w Gay Bechtelheimer
November 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
A Lecture Series with Gay Bechtelheimer hosted Thursday Evenings at 6:00 p.m. With a “Wham!” and a “Bang!”, Pop Art emerged almost simultaneously in Great Britain and the United States in the Early 1950s. It was a major shift in the direction of modernism, with artists embracing the post-World War II manufacturing and media boom. Images from popular culture, the mass media, and mass production were all created to celebrate the optimism of the times. Pop Art was witty, gimmicky, glamorous, and full of humor and satire. The influence of Pop Art extends beyond the art world by influencing the business world and continually transforming culture into an ever greater artistic spectacle.
