This semester, the David Owsley Museum of Art is showcasing several of the most popular artists of the second half of the 20th and the early 21st centuries with “POP Power from Warhol to Koons: Masterworks from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.” Opening on Thursday, February 25, this special exhibition explores the work of Pop artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein next to that of their present-day, Neo-Pop heirs, including powerhouses such as the American Jeff Koons and his English counterpart Damien Hirst. By examining Pop and Neo-Pop art together and comparing their similarities and differences, we gain a deeper understanding of their practitioners’ intentions and strategies.
Dr. Robert G. La France, director of DOMA, will give a free, online overview of the exhibition for educators and museum friends on Monday, March 1. Please register by Friday, February 28, to receive the Zoom link prior to the program.
The exhibition is organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, and appeared at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane, Washington, before coming to DOMA.
