Vivid Lines in Graphic Times

Aug 28, 2009 to Jan 3, 2010

This selection of paintings and works on paper from the museum's permanent collection explores how a diverse range of American artists engaged Pop Art elements—vibrant color, readymade images, graphic line—yet moved beyond the movement's boundaries in form, material, and message.

Whether appropriating images from consumerist culture, taking influence from comic books, or simply utilizing graphic techniques in the creative process, these works from the 1970s through the late 1990s specifically illustrate how meaning and feeling may be conveyed through various graphic methods.
