{Robert Rauschenberg Exhibit}

It wasn't until I was in college that I discovered that Pop Art consisted of more then just Campbell Soup cans and comic strips. Of all the artists that I learned about in my required art course only a few remain in my memory. Among them is Robert Rauschenberg who along with Jasper Johns helped ignite the Pop Art scene in the United States. Since summer is here I am obligated to drag my non-accomadating child to a musuem so that he can detox from his daily fix of non-stop video gaming. What can be better then the Rauschenberg exhibit at MOCA? Rauschenberg who became an artist late in life had a tendencey to use materials that were outside the norm. Pieces in the current exhibit include 'Coca-Cola Plan" (which features suprise suprise glass coke bottles) as well as other works.
