Kenny Scharf Exhibition

, New York City | Arts & Culture

Nassau County Museum of Art Kenny Scharf Exhibition ongoing till 7/10/16 Emerging with the New York City graffiti and street art movement of the 1980s, Kenny Scharf is recognized by his vibrantly colorful large-scale paintings and exuberantly playful installations. His imagery draws upon pop icons, media advertising and consumer culture of the 1960s, including TV cartoon characters such as the Flintstones and the Jetsons. Curated by Museum Director Dr. Karl E. Willers and the Museum’s staff, Kenny Scharf showcases approximately 50 major paintings and sculptures from throughout the artist’s career. Highlights of this exhibition are installations taken directly from the artist’s former Brooklyn studio and loft space. Re-installed in the Museum’s galleries are a version of the artist’s Cosmic Cavern club-like environment, as well as a recreation of the artist’s workspace complete with spattered walls, painted furniture and other studio ephemera.
