The Philadelphia Museum of Art's new exhibit "International Pop" will open Feb. 24. The exhibition will show how pop art expanded from the UK and America to eastern Europe, Latin America and Japan.
Each area experimented with its own form of the art movement from 1956 to 1972, but one thing always stayed the same: the bold, thought-provoking imagery.
The artwork wasn't just provoking for it's time, either. Recently, Evelyne Axell's "Ice Cream" from 1964 was removed from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Facebook page.
Axell and other popular names, such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, will be on display at the exhibit that features 150 works by artists from 20 different countries.
The exhibit will be on display until May 15 and the Philadelphia Museum of Art is the exhibition’s only East Coast venue.
