Art of the 1960s (In-Person)

Carol Salus
Professor, Art History, Kent State University (retired)
Landmark Centre Building
Fridays, October 7 - November 11
10 - 11:30 a.m. ET

This course, with an initial look into key figures of the 1950s, will cover a sampling of movements during this prosperous decade of the 1960s as well as contemporaneous European responses. In addition, a biographical approach to the works of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol will provide important insights into their works. The 1960s is one of the most fascinating decades in art history of the last century: some artists focus on news events with photographs of key moments, some on purified reductive forms in elegant metals, while others long for the untouched lands of the West by the use of actual earth in their vast projects.
