In the mid-1950s, artists regularly looked to popular culture as source material for paintings, sculptures, photographs, and printmaking. This "cohesive tendency" was coined pop art and its reach is broad. Included are the early practitioners Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, and James Rosenquist, as well as West Coast artists Joe Goode and Ed Ruscha. Sculptures by Claes Oldenburg will be on view alongside those of George Segal. Also included is the work of contemporary artists whose use of commercial motifs and everyday objects and materials advance the ideas of pop art's first practitioners, including Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Rita McBride, and Christopher Wool.
