“Everything is beautiful. Pop is everything.”—Andy Warhol

FLUSHING, NY, September 7, 2006 – Warhol’s pronouncement perfectly captures the spirit of Pop Art, the movement that defined the generation that came of age in the 1960s and ’70s. An electrifying exhibition, POPSTARS!—on view at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College in Flushing from September 18 through December 14— features works by some of the era’s major Pop artists. These include Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Mel Ramos, Robert Rauschenberg, British artist Patrick Caulfield and, of course, Andy himself.

Crying Girl (Roy Lichtenstein, 1964)

In the world of Pop Art, the everyday was portrayed as extraordinary in the same way that celebrity was considered an idol to be glorified. From Lichtenstein’s comic strip art and Warhol’s Campbell Soup cans to Larry Rivers’ interpretation of media and historical events, Pop Art did not discriminate between kitsch and political commentary. Anything and everything was fair game.

POPSTARS! examines the relationship between Pop Art and the current phenomenon of pop culture. Pop Art revolutionized American art and triggered a subculture all its own whose impact is still felt today in society’s veneration of celebrity and extreme consumerism.

The public is invited to a free reception on opening night, Monday, September 18, from 5-7 pm.

POPSTARS! can be viewed from Monday through Thursday, 11 am – 7 pm, and on Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm. Please note that the museum is closed during school closings and campus holidays. Admission is free. For directions to Queens College, please visit:
