Course Description

California artists may follow styles that originate in Europe or New York, but they put their own stamp on them – sometimes a bit more irreverent, sometimes more down to earth, but always full of California color and verve.  In 1962, Pop Art – the flip and hip answer to the soulful Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s – burst on the art scene when the Ferus Gallery on La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles exhibited Andy Warhol’s soup cans. Local artists were mining the same territory, bringing objects of contemporary life, like ice cream cones, gas stations, and the Goodyear blimp, into art. Learn about a few California Pop stars – Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, Joan Brown, Roger Kuntz, and Robert Colescott – in this talk.

Then on Friday we will join instructor Avril Angevine on a tour of the work of Joan Brown at SFMOMA.

This is a 2 day course. Thursday Zoom Lecture 1:00-2:30  and Friday Field Study to SF MOMA. 11:00 in the tour with Avril, we will send out exact time schedule once we have registrations. Plan for a full day, with transport to and from SF MOMA.
