Class Number #4 In This Series
Thursday May 24, 2018 — Pop Art: From Andy Warhol to Keith Haring
There’s a reason it’s called POP! The 1960s images of the Pop Art movement were so cross cultural and cross generational that nearly everyone had some hanging on their wall, emblazoned on their T-shirts, and in their local museums. The superstar founder of the movement, Andy Warhol, was totally, unabashedly out as a Gay man. And many other Queer artists of the time were making work you’ll recognize as well. 15 years later Keith Haring (who grew up in Kutztown) used his Pop Art images to speak out against racism, poverty, and hate and helped unite the fight against AIDS. Learn more about them and other Pop artists in this class.
