Pop Art What does the “Pop” in Pop Art stand for?
The “Pop” Stands for Popular Culture What is Popular Culture? What is it made up of?
Popular Culture is commercial culture that is defined by popular tastes at the time. Is Pop Culture of your generation the same as Pop Culture of your parents or grandparents?
After World War II, the United States went through significant cultural and social changes, which helped form the Pop Art movement. In the 1950 s and 60 s, mass media changed and the consumer culture of the United States shifted towards mass consumption. (Many people started associating with and buying the same types of things)
Popular Foods, Images and People Celebrities, characters, or objects became POP ICONS that provided defining characteristics of a whole society or era. Fast food restaurants and television commercials led to the mass consumption that formed the Pop Art movement.
