POP Power from Warhol to Koons provides audiences with a new look at the work of Pop Art pioneers such as powerhouses Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, and Roy Lichtenstein by presenting their iconic works alongside those of their present-day Neo-Pop counterparts. The exhibition features over 114 engaging and powerful works created since the birth of Pop over a half-century ago. Pop Power includes works by noted celebrity Neo-Pop artists such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and Takashi Murakami. Demonstrating its broad contemporary appeal in this latest crop of Pop practitioners, the Pop aesthetic is as popular today as it was in the 1960s. The exhibition underscores the draw Pop has on the contemporary imagination. This cross-historical survey of Pop and Neo-Pop art presented in POP Power from Warhol to Koons was made possible through a collaboration with Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. Together, the two collections represent the nation’s largest private collection of Pop and Neo-Pop prints and multiples. The exhibition features many recent and important acquisitions by collector Jordan D. Schnitzer including significant works by Koons, Murakami, and others. POP Power from Warhol to Koons: Masterworks from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, was curated by the late Patrick Shaw Cable, PhD, Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Education of the Taubman Museum of Art, Roanoke, Virginia. The exhibition is organized by the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and the Taubman Museum of Art.
