Large-Scale Lichtenstein Pops Up on NOMA's Lawn


Pop art has popped up on the lawn at NOMA, with Lichtenstein's “Five Brushstrokes” erected today. The museum announced the joint donation from Sydney and Walda Besthoff in October, and the large-scale sculpture is greeting visitors now, in the midst of some renovations. 

 

Clean lines and loud colors characterize the towering aluminum sculpture. "Five Brushstrokes" embodies Lichtenstein’s attention to detail and tongue-in-cheek humor.  One brushstroke stacked atop another draws the viewers’ eye up with different color panels. 

 

NOMA is still in the process of renovating their pool, as well as adding seating and additional lighting to the area around the sculpture. Spokesperson Allison Gouaux said that NOMA expects all renovations to be completed by the spring.

 

The Montine McDaniel Freeman Director, Susan M. Taylor, issued a statement on the new 20 ft. sculpture, thanking the Besthoff’s for making such a boast-worthy piece possible.

 

“Its placement in front of the museum will ensure that it will be appreciated and enjoyed by generations of visitors for many years to come. We are honored to be able to showcase Roy Lichtenstein’s work here at NOMA,” said Taylor.
