New Exhibition at the Denver Art Museum


The Denver Art Museum is featuring a new, mid-summer exhibition called Beyond Pop Art: A Tom Wesselmann Retrospective.  According to the museum, this exhibition is part of a tradition of bringing exhibitions to Denver, like Becoming Van Gogh, that provide an inside look into an artist’s process. This collection shows Wesselmann’s creative process as an artist and the evolution of his work. Chronologically, it includes his earliest abstract collages, colorful series of the Pop period, and later works. This collection includes the famous Still Life #60, which is over 25 feet long!

Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) is an American artist who, despite rejecting his label as a “Pop Artist,” nevertheless contributed to the art movement. His work continues to be grouped with that of famous pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Wesselmann was also inspired by the artist Robert Motherwell, whose famous painting, Elegy to the Spanish Republic, was on display at the Denver Art Museum this year.

This collection is at the Hamilton Building from July 13 - September 21, 2014. Entry is included with a general admission ticket. The Denver Art Museum is also hosting their next free admission day on Saturday, August 2.
