Pop Culture: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

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 works. 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.

The works on view demonstrate conceptions of Pop art as they emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the ways that contemporary artists today have extended and elaborated upon visual representations of mass culture and consumerism. Pop artists and their successors abandoned traditions of "high art" in favor of creating work that is based on conventionalized imagery of commercial graphics. Pop Culture illustrates how the movement's extensive history has influenced artistic production in our present cultural movement.

Works for the exhibition come from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles and is curated by Billie Milam Weisman.

Pop Culture at the Boca Museum of Art is generously underwritten by Dr. Nicole Edeiken.

Fascination: The Love Affair Between French and Japanese Printmaking

Drawing on the Museum's collection of French lithographs and Japanese colored woodblock prints, Fascination is a study of the impact that the "cult of Japan" had on late-nineteenth century French printmaking. French artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jules Chéret, and Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen utilized the Japanese design elements of pattern, flat blocks of color, and diagonal compositions to create some of the most iconic prints from the Art Nouveau period.

A selection of works by acclaimed woodblock printers Utagawa Kunisada (Toyokuni III), Hiroshige I, and Ichiyusai Kuniyoshi are paired with the French prints to demonstrate the principles from which the Art Nouveau artists drew. Visitors will notice not only the similarity in style but also in subject as the collections both highlight stage actors and courtesans from the respective demimonde and ukiyo subcultures.
Utagawa Toyokuni III (Utagawa Kunisada) (Japanese, 1786-1865), The Actor Ichikawa Danjuro VII in an Unidentified Role, circa 1855, woodblock printed in colors, Permanent Collection 1988.050, Gift of Mrs. Jeanne Wechsler in memory of A.F. Wechsler
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864-1901), Mademoiselle Marcelle Lender, en buste from Pan, vol. I, 1895, eight -color lithograph, 13 x 19 1/4 inches, Permanent Collection 2007.5.34, Bequest of Isadore and Kelly Friedman

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard


On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
