From Warhol to Banksy invites visitors to view works of art that highlight the Pop Art Movement and the careers of some of the art world’s most iconic figures. This exhibition features works by artists Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Takashi Murakami, Banksy, and Mr. Brainwash.
Pop Art - known for its commentary on consumerism, social consciousness, and, more recently, activism - is not just a phenomenon of the 1960s. The evolution of Pop Art, from Andy Warhol’s infamous Marilyn Monroe screen prints to Banksy’s guerilla street art, has completely blurred the lines between high and low art. Through a selection of prints, paintings, sculpture, and ephemera, visitors will see first-hand how Pop Art continues to critique our world and challenges us to think about the issues that persist in our everyday life.
Artists: Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Takashi Murakami, Banksy and Mr. Brainwash
