HANCEVILLE, Ala. — Dozens of artists in the Cullman area put their own spin on pop art with the What’s Pop Community Art Showcase hosted by the Wallace State Community College Fine and Performing Arts program.

The exhibition came about as a complement to the “Fifteen Minutes: Homage to Andy Warhol” exhibition currently installed at The Evelyn Burrow Museum, which has been extended through Nov. 18. Area artists in all age ranges were challenged with creating artwork based on themes of today’s popular and consumer culture.

“I was pleased with the entries we received for the What’s Pop exhibition,” said Adrian Scott, director of the Visual Communications program at Wallace State. “Many of the artists took to heart the essence of what Andy Warhol’s art embodied and created some very interesting pieces.”

The exhibit is available for viewing on the north end of the Exhibit Hall of The Evelyn Burrow Museum in the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts and as a digital exhibit by visiting https://issuu.com/wsart_vcm/docs/whats_pop_community_showcase_exhibi.

Students from St. Bernard Prep, Cullman High School, home school students, and the general public submitted artwork for the exhibition. The media they chose to work in ranged from drawings and photography, to paintings and computer-generated artwork.

“Fifteen Minutes: Homage to Andy Warhol” will be on exhibit at The Evelyn Burrow Museum through Nov. 18. Admission to the museum is free open to the public. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visit www.burrowmuseum.org or call 256.352.8457 for more information.
