The Other Mad Men: Pop Art in Perspective
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
From the work of former commercial artist and window display designer Andy Warhol to billboard painter James Rosenquist, the American advertising world helped to inform and inspire the Pop Art movement. Arts educator Carol Inge Hockett explores the painting, sculpture, and printmaking of Warhol, Rosenquist, Tom Wesselmann, and Claes Oldenburg, as well as the work of pop poet Ronald Gross.
Hockett is coordinator of the School and Family Programs at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University and formerly worked at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
