The exhibit features artists like Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Jenny Holzer, Keith Haring and much more, all curated by Billie Milam Weisman; president and director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. Each piece of art on display offers a critique of idolization and commercialization of pop culture through recognizable characters and brands.

When the Pop Art movement first surfaced in the mid 1950s artists sought to challenge traditional conceptions of art-making by incorporating consumer culture and everyday objects into their work. Artists during this period transformed icons associated with mass media, comic books, and popular culture into visual expressions that often reflected a growing societal infatuation with consumerism. When it originated, the Pop art movement sought to ironically emphasize images representing the commonplace or kitschy elements of a given culture. Today, contemporary artists have elaborated on the traditions established by the Pop artists who created an aesthetic style that reflected the changing needs and interests of varying societies. This exhibition merges art that reflects and comments on POPular and unPOPular culture and vernacular of the 1960s to the present with selections curated from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
