Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective - National Gallery of Art

This  event is scheduled during the last weekend this exhibition will be on display.

 

This gallery is very close to Teaism @ Penn Quarter - Archives Metro so for those who are interested, we can enjoy a bite & sip after our visit to the gallery.

 

The exhibition is in the National Gallery's East Building, on the  Mezzanine Level.  We will meet on the Ground Level in the East Building near the Art Information Desk at 1PM.  The floor plan of the East Building can be viewed by clicking here.

 

How to get there:

Car Free: The nearest Metro stops are Judiciary Square on the Red Line, Archives on the Yellow/Green Lines, and Smithsonian on the Blue/Orange Lines. Metro bus stops are located on 4th Street and 7th Street NW.

Car: Public parking is limited to the surrounding streets and commercial garages. Parking spaces, ramps, and elevators provide access to public areas and galleries for visitors with disabilities at the East Building entrance on 4th Street NW and the West Building entrance on Constitution Avenue at 6th Street NW.

    I just joined the group. I'd like to see this exhibit and meet some other introverts, so I'll probably show up.

    I'm tempted to go, since I live about 8 blocks away from the National Gallery of Art, but I'm still recovering from a sprained toe, so I probably wont be up to it... I sometimes read graphic novels. I'm slowly reading Y the Last Man. I'm up to #22.

    One of the things that will become apparent when you see the exhibit is that the comic book genre is only a portion of his work... There are sculptures as well as a number of different genres. But I would hazard a guess to say that those who create comic books (the artists/illustrators) consider themselves to be artists.

    Evan - Agreed. As an artist with a narrative style, IMHO it's all in the talking game as to how an artist's work is promoted or represented. It can make for quite a sizable load of horsepoop in the road to earning higher degrees in art, or pursuing a career as an illustrator or graphic novelist.

    Is anyone else a comic book fan? I have strong feelings about how Lichtenstein is considered "art" but the stuff he was "inspired" by isn't.

    • Joshua K.

      I'm not necessarily a comic book fan, but I would definitely consider comic books, graphic novels, etc. an art form.

    hi all--just joined, and while i'm excited to see this exhibit, i'm also painfully shy (duh, introvert) so if the anxiety gets the better of me, i might not attend...but i'd love to get my gumption up and give it a try sometime. we'll see. at any rate, hello.

      Hi Erin,

      Welcome. I'm pretty shy myself and found the group to be really relaxed and non threatening. I live in Arlington and would be happy to drive/metro in with you if that would help.

    I won't be able to join you all, but I did have the pleasure of seeing this exhibit last week. It was awesome. Have a great time and I look forward to meeting you all at a meetup in the near future.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
