Huntington Arts Council Presents “Bright Colors, Bold Strokes: Creations of Lowbrow Art”
March 29 @ 9:00 am - May 4 @ 5:00 pmFree
Reception: March 29, 6-8pm
Lowbrow started as an underground visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, California, area in the late 1970s. It is a populist art movement with its cultural roots in underground comix, punk music, tiki culture, and hot-rod cultures of the street. It is also often known by the name pop surrealism. It continues its rich history with such publications as Juxtopose, Hi-Fuctose, and Carpazine. Lowbrow art often has a sense of humor — sometimes gleeful, impish, or sarcastic. Show is juried by Benjamin Owens.
