While the Museum is under construction, we are installing “pop-up” exhibitions around town. Popping up at our temporary gallery On the Slope is Pop ‘n’ Op, an exhibition featuring Pop and Op art from the 1960s and 1970s. From pulsating lines and psychedelic colors to iconic imagery of consumer culture, works like these created a new kind of art experience. Collapsing boundaries between fine art and commercial design, these works appealed to a wider public and sent shockwaves through the art world.
