Western Pop: Andy Warhol & Billy Schenck
Western Pop brings to light the intersections between contemporary art of the American West and contemporary American art. The crossroads of Andy Warhol: Cowboys and Indians and Billy Schenck: Myth of the West is a place where museumgoers can better understand Western Pop as a subcategory of contemporary Western and contemporary American art. For too long, the art of the American West has been ignored or overlooked by the American art establishment. It is noteworthy that the path to better understanding and greater acceptance is through Pop art, originally produced with the intention of making art more accessible to more people.
