California artists may follow styles that originate in Europe or New York, but they put their own stamp on them—sometimes a bit more irreverent, sometimes more down to earth, but usually full of California color and verve. In the 1960s, local artists responded to the arrival of Pop Art—the flip and hip answer to the Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s—with California panache.
Learn about a few of our Pop stars—Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, Joan Brown, Roger Kuntz, and Robert Colescott—in this talk.

Independent Docent Speaker:  Avril Angevine
The library does not record any of the art talks but you can visit Avril’s website to access to many of her talks there.

This talk coincides with SFMOMA’s exhibition on Joan Brown coming late November.
