A happening place


The happening place in Philadelphia, these days, is the Borowsky Gallery‘s display of 1960s Pop Art. Pieces by artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Christo, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol had been displayed there in a series of groundbreaking exhibitions in the 1960s, and now many of those pieces, or similar ones, are back in the show “A Happening Place,” looking as sassy as ever. The work is a barrel of fun–like Robert Watts’ checkers played by fish in a square tank over a checkerboard, a Wayne Thiebaud pastel sandwich, Lucas Samaras’ mirror box (left), Robert Arneson’s “Six Pack.” The show is worth way more than its $5 cost of admission (free to students with current ID). Go.
