Exhibition of Summer Student Artists set for July 28 in Faulconer Gallery

The exhibition will feature works by students participating in area summer programs

An exhibition of artworks created by elementary students in area summer programs will be on view at Grinnell College's Faulconer Gallery from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28. The exhibition will include paintings, cyanotypes, sculptures and books, and is free and open to the public.

The student works will be installed next to works in the Faulconer Gallery's summer exhibition of pop art, titled "Shiny, Sticky, Smooth: Pop Art and the Senses," from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation.

"Shiny, Sticky, Smooth" opened on July 1 and continues through Sunday, Sept. 3. Appropriate for all ages, the exhibition of more than 70 pop art prints and sculptures features generations of America's most famous pop artists from the 1960s to 1990s. Pop art emerged from the booming consumer culture in post-World War II America, combining advertising imagery and strategies with bold colors and familiar objects.

This exhibition includes works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, Jeff Koons and other exceptional artists who offer viewers deeper understanding of pop culture in the form of art.

Faulconer Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week (closed Tuesday, July 4), and admission is free. The Faulconer Gallery is in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell.

The college also welcomes the presence of minors at all age-appropriate public events and for informal visits, with the understanding that a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult assumes full responsibility for their child's safety and behavior during such visits or events. In these cases, the college expects that an adult responsible for the visiting child takes measures to ensure the child's safety and sees that the child complies with directions of college personnel. Grinnell College is not responsible for supervision of minors on campus.
