    California artists may follow styles that originate in Europe or New York, but they put their own stamp on them.  In 1962, Pop Art burst on the art scene when the Ferus Gallery on La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles exhibited Andy Warhol’s soup cans. Local artists were mining the same territory, bringing objects of contemporary life, like ice cream cones, gas stations, and the Goodyear blimp, into art. Learn about a few California Pop stars—Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, Joan Brown, Roger Kuntz, and Robert Colescott—in this talk.

    Let’s take a close look at this seminal work of the most daring, innovative, and influential figure in musical theatre history. You’ll learn about its unique plot structure, novel staging, and more.  But most significant, is what Sondheim has to say about dating, marriage, and coupling-in- general, via his brilliant score. As you will see and hear from the clips your instructor will be including, that score is filled with songs that are not only wickedly witty and vastly entertaining, but profound, thought-provoking and heart-wrenching.  Also included will be your instructor’s experiences corresponding with Sondheim over the years and interviewing him in his home at the peak of his career.
