Evening for Educators: Pop Prints: The Art of Andy Warhol and Corita Kent
Andy Warhol and other Pop artists revolutionized the art world by integrating contemporary events and popular culture into their art. This program will explore both the major retrospective Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation and the special exhibition Spiritual Pop, featuring prints by “joyous revolutionary” and nun Corita Kent. Warhol and Kent responded to the world around them by appropriating and repurposing images and slogans from advertising and mass culture. How does the meaning of a commercial image or phrase change when an artist incorporates it into his or her composition? What do these prints tell us about artistic process? Join us for an evening with Museum curators and educators.
