The show Pop Art & Beyond will open at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis Friday, February 7, 2014 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm. At 7:00, Siri Engberg, Senior Curator at the Walker Art Center presents an opening gallery talk.
The exhibition consists of 26 prints by artists who helped launch and shape the American Pop movement, which emerged in the early 1960s and was characterized by stark, almost symbolic representations. The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Leach of the Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
Collector Jordan D. Schnitzer comments: ”The exhibition of Pop Artists speaks to a time and place in our country’s history that was remarkable. I am pleased that the Highpoint Center, a nationally significant art center, has chosen to exhibit these works.”
The show runs through March 29, 2014.
