Mass media, culture and production, as seen through the lens of Pop Art is the focus of the Arvada Center’s first exhibition series of 2015. Fun, bold and rebellious, the Pop movement was a major departure from the prior artistic endeavors of the mid-twentieth century. rePOPulated: contemporary perspectives on pop art will showcase the evolution of the movement from the beginning to now. From the collection of the CU Art Museum in Boulder, pioneers of the American Pop Art movement such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist will be featured, while the rest of the exhibition will highlight regional contemporary artists and their perspectives on Pop Art today.
