Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisiv… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art. Arts Huntsville Member? Yes.

Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century.

Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisiv… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art. Arts Huntsville Member? Yes.

Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century.

Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisiv… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art. Arts Huntsville Member? Yes.

Celebrating the 1960s

Museums, Studios & Galleries Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day. But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of e… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Museums, Studios & Galleries Parental discretion is advised. The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year. To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisiv… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art. Arts Huntsville Member? Yes.
