Pop ‘n’ Op: New exhibit opens On the Slope

Announcement from The Asheville Art Museum: 

We are excited to present a new exhibition in our On the Slope “pop-up” gallery! Pop ‘n’ Op, which is on view March 18 – May 14, features American Pop and Op art. From pulsating lines and psychedelic colors to iconic imagery of consumer culture, works like those on view in this exhibition created a new kind of art experience. Collapsing boundaries between fine art and commercial design, these works appealed to a wider public and sent shockwaves through the art world.

175 Biltmore Avenue
While admission is free at our temporary “On The Slope” location, we do encourage a suggested $5 donation to support the Museum’s programs serving all of WNC.
