Drawn from the Weatherspoon’s collection, 1960s: A Survey of the Decade highlights various art styles and social issues that emerged in America during the turbulent decade of the 1960s. Paintings by figurative artists such as Philip Pearlstein and Alex Katz will hang alongside abstract compositions by Raymond Parker, Larry Rivers, and Al Held. Conceptualist works by Shusaku Arakawa and Lee Lozano will serve as counterpoints to Robert Rauschenberg’s socio-political painting, Straw-Boss. The museum will also display works on paper and sculpture by many of the leading artists of that time including Pop prints by Andy Warhol.
