Kirkland Art Center to host discussion on Mad Men's Women of Pop

The Kirkland Art Center is hosting an arts and culture lecture series with "Mad Men's Women of Pop" being discussed from 6:30-8 p.m. on Oct. 30.

Here is a description of this event:

Looking back at the culture of the early 1960s and the stereotypes of women before the Women's Liberation Movement, we will explore the work of four Pop Artists: Andy Warhol, Mel Ramos, Roy Lichtenstein, and Tom Wesselmann. In that context, we will analyze their representations of women. How did their images perpetuate the stereotypes? Were they just recreating what was already there, were they reacting to it, or was their intent totally different?

The event will take place at the KAC, located at 620 Market Street.

Admission is $10.
