Art History Illustrated, Deeply Superficial: The Pop Art of Andy Warhol

Thursday, May 16, 2024

5:30-7:00 pm

Undoubtedly, Andy Warhol was the biggest star in the Pop Art movement, which drew its iconography from popular culture, making it instantly recognizable and understandable to the general public. Along with the Campbell’s soup cans and Coke bottles, Warhol also produced lesser-known, darker images of death and tragedy. What wisdom might there be in his works? What does it mean to repeat the identical subject twice within a single work? 50 times? 100 times? Join art historian Brenda Edgar to explore the defining art movement of the 1960s, and get to know the intriguing man behind some of the most valuable art in the world today.

Join us for our “Art History Illustrated” talk series, held the third Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m. This monthly illustrated talk series is presented by art historian Brenda Edgar, in collaboration with The Floyd County Carnegie Library Cultural Arts Center.
