Event Description:
 RESCHEDULED From Jan. 20th
Shirley Waxman will visit the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24th, to deliver a talk entitled “POP Art and the American Dream.” Ms. Waxman comes to us via the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Community Speakers Program.

In the years following World War II, the United States enjoyed an unprecedented period of economic and political growth which led to an explosive change in our culture. Television, dishwashers, cars, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe were suddenly everywhere. Taking inspiration from the world around them, American Pop artists began creating art directly from everyday items, consumer goods, and mass media. Pop art became both a response to the changing times and also the newest product.

This talk explores the works of the most celebrated American Pop artists, including Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Wayne Thiebauld, who all boldly experimented with new media and the American Dream.
