Wonders of the World (WOW) Presents: California Pop

WOW welcomes you back to an in-person art talk by Avril Angevine at the Lafayette Library.

California artists may follow styles that originate in Europe or New York, but they put their own stamp on them—sometimes a bit more irreverent, sometimes more down to earth, but always full of California color and verve. In 1962, Pop Art—the flip and hip answer to the soulful Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s—burst on the art scene when the Ferus Gallery on La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles exhibited Andy Warhol’s soup cans. Local artists were mining the same territory, bringing objects of contemporary life, like ice cream cones, gas stations, and the Goodyear blimp, into art. Learn about a few California Pop stars—Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, Joan Brown, Roger Kuntz, and Robert Colescott—in this talk.
