Friday, July 28, 2017

An exhibition of artworks created by elementary students in area summer programs will be on view at Grinnell College's Faulconer Gallery from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28. The exhibition will include paintings, cyanotypes, sculptures, and books, and is free and open to the public.

The student works will be installed next to works in the Faulconer Gallery's summer exhibition of pop art, “Shiny, Sticky, Smooth: Pop Art and the Senses — from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation.”

"Shiny, Sticky, Smooth" opened on July 1 and continues through Sunday, Sept. 3. Appropriate for all ages, the exhibition of more than 70 pop art prints and sculptures features generations of America's most famous pop artists from the 1960s to 1990s. Pop art emerged from the booming consumer culture in post-World War II America, combining advertising imagery and strategies with bold colors and familiar objects.

This exhibition includes works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, Jeff Koons and other exceptional artists who offer viewers deeper understanding of pop culture in the form of art.

Faulconer Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, and admission is free. The Faulconer Gallery is in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell.
