Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein's technique was inspired by commercial advertising and comic strips. The Skirball Cultural Center's "Pop for the People: Roy Lichtenstein in L.A." features more than 70 examples spanning four decades, showcasing how Lichtenstein and the pop art movement made visual art appealing to the public. Among the items on display are the rarely exhibited Ten Dollar Bill (1956) and famous pieces Sunrise (1965) and Shipboard Girl (1965); comic book works; and prints from Lichtenstein's longtime partnership with Los Angeles print workshop Gemini G.E.L., currently the subject of a 50th-anniversary retrospective at LACMA. The collection also includes an interactive re-creation of Lichtenstein's 1992 Bedroom at Arles, which is based on Vincent van Gogh's painting series Bedroom in Arles.
