Strange Brew: The 1960s
Friday, May 29–Sunday, September 20, 2009
This selection of works from the Gallery’s Permanent Collection focuses on an era that produced some of the most culturally responsive imagery in American history. The art that sprang from the 1960s counterculture, which fuses elements of surrealism and pop art with swirling patterns, neon colors, repeated motifs, and bizarre iconography, speaks to a wide range of social, political, and spiritual themes. The exhibition will feature works by artists Werner Philips, Larry Slezak, and William Weege, among others.
This exhibition was organized by Associate Curator Holly E. Hughes.
