Pop artist/author Michael Albert brings his “Modern Pop Art Experience” to the Wichita Public Library this summer as part of his Summer Pop Tour. New York- based Albert, who is the author of an autobiography titled An Artist’s America (Henry Holt, 2008) is known for making detailed and colorful collages out of cereal boxes and other printed cardboard consumer packages, including crackers, cookies, soda cartons, frozen pizza boxes, etc.
Albert will lead this afternoon art making session for tweens, teens and their parents. Participants in the two-hour program will listen to a short presentation by the artist about his life and work, then have a chance to create their own collage using the same materials he uses to create his masterpieces.
All those who make a collage will receive a free signed limited-edition poster compliments of the artist. In the past decade, Albert has brought this program to more than 1,000 libraries and museums all over the USA and Europe. This will be his first visit to Wichita and his only program in Kansas this summer.
