Since the consumer explosion following World War II, numerous artists have been trained in commercial work and have adapted themes and techniques of advertising and Pulp fiction to their work. Most notably, Andy Warhol and James Rosenquist studied commercial art, and Roy Lichtenstein utilized the Ben-Day dot familiar from illustrations in comic books. This exhibition features artists who merge techniques and processes of “high” and “low” art including the aforementioned trio as well as Enrique Chagoya, Jasper Johns, and Tom Wesselmann, among others.

Open Wed-Sun 11am – 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY.
