For more than 40 years, gallery owners Ileana and Michael Sonnabend championed avant-garde American and European artists, often showing bold new work considered impossible to sell or too difficult for the times.

Dubbed "the Mom of Pop Art," Ileana Sonnabend introduced pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art to Europe in the 1960s and brought a new wave of European artists to New York in the 1980s. Join us for a look at selections from her diverse collection and a discussion of her durable taste.

This course is taught by Dr. Susan Myers, former faculty member in Ohio State's Department of Art Education, who frequently presents educational programs for the Wexner Center and Columbus Museum of Art.
