Pop Art


Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the United Kingdom and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s. The movement presented a challenge to traditions of fine art and participated in social commentary by including imagery from popular and mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. We want to see what you have to say about our society through examining cultural artifacts in the year 2020.
