artists & participants
In the wake of pop art and the cartoon and the advertising style graphic artists developed in the 1940s and 1950s, the imagery in 'Art in the 'Toon Age' developed. 'Toon Age art is marked by a springing line, a feeling of caricature, and a generally upbeat mood. Though it may look innocent, 'Toon Age art is visually and psychologically loaded, both with compositional sweetness and narrative possibilities. Organized from the collection of the Kresge Art Museum by April Kingsley, the exhibition in Special Exhibition Galleries I and II features works of art by an international group of artists, including Roger Brown, John Clem Clarke, Red Grooms, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Elizabeth Murray, Jim Nutt, Karl Wirsum, among others.
