Pop Artist/Author Michael Albert brings his “Modern Pop Art Experience” to the Wichita Public Library as part of his Summer Pop Art Tour. New York-based Albert, who is the author of an artist autobiography titled An Artist’s America (Henry Holt, 2008) is known for making detailed & colorful collages out of cereal boxes & other printed cardboard consumer packages including crackers, cookies, soda cartons, frozen pizza boxes, etc. Albert will lead this afternoon art-making session for tweens and teens (ages 9-17), and parents are welcome to join in. Participants in the 2-hour program will listen to a short presentation by the artist about his life & 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 from a selection of over 14 different prints compliments of the artist. In the past decade Albert has brought this program to over 1,000 libraries & museums all over the USA & in Europe & this will be his first visit to Wichita and his only program in Kansas this summer. Registration is required, beginning June 1; register online or call the library. Youth and parents may register individually.
