Boca Museum Presents Works from Prestigious Pop Art Collection
 
Published Thursday, December 5, 2013

Boca Raton, FL - An exceptional display of contemporary and classic works of Pop art is the feature season exhibition at the Boca Museum of Art through April 23, 2014.

Pop Culture: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation explores the origins of the Pop art movement and its continuing influence on contemporary art. Included are extraordinary artworks by Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, Edward Ruscha, Keith Haring, Gilbert and George, and many others.

”This engaging exhibition beautifully demonstrates how artists both influence and are inspired by elements of popular culture” said Boca Museum of Art director, Steven Maklansky.

When it originated in the mid-1950s and 1960s, artists associated with the Pop art movement sought to ironically emphasize images representing the kitschy or clichéd elements of mass culture and consumerism. They abandoned subject matter associated with “high art” in favor of works based upon conventional imagery and commercial graphics. Since then, the interactions of fine art and popular culture have grown ever more numerous and complex.

Over 100 works fill the Museum’s first floor galleries in an exhibition that highlights how artists both borrow and transform the most iconic and the most mundane popular source material. From Andy Warhol’s portraits of Marilyn Monroe to Red Grooms’ portrait of Mae West; from an exclamation point sculpted by Richard Artschwager to a typewriter eraser sculpted by Claes Oldenburg; from a motorcycle painted by Keith Haring to John Chamberlain’s sculpture recalling a car crash; and from Andrew Lewicki’s sculpture of a giant Oreo manhole cover to Jose Quinones’ painting of a crushed Orange Crush soda can, the Pop Culture exhibition provides a shopping-spree-like sampling of consumer consumption interpreted through the fascinating and enlightening lens of artistic production.

Frederick R. Weisman, the successful businessman who amassed the extensive collection from which the works in Pop Culture were selected once said, “I don’t think there is anything that communicates better than art. It is quicker than language and clearer than philosophy,”

Pop Culture is funded by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles and a generous contribution by Dr. Nicole Edeiken. Media support is provided by the Boca Raton Observer.

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)
