Art of the Sixties takes us back to the early years of the 60s, as art evolved from the two-dimensional picture frame concept to sculpture merged in color. This concept is art in the third dimension. Pop art became a cultural phenomenon, and Art of the Sixties explores this unique and eclectic part of US History. With Barnett Newmann as the narrator, the works of 15 representative major artists, including Segal’s lifesized plaster figures, are presented. Oldenburg’s monumental works and many others are studied in detail. This film is a perfect companion piece for art history and upper school/college fine art study. A WCBS-TV production.
