 Pop Art - MSN Encarta
One of the most important artistic movements of the 20th century, pop art not only influenced the work of subsequent artists but also had an impact on commercial, graphic, and fashion design.

Chicano art is a straightforward activist, political (in the sense of "choosing a side" on an issue), and didactic art form that calls on the viewer to educate him or herself about the cultural origin of the art and the intentions of the artists in order to appreciate and understand it.
In the case of Chicano and Chicana art and artists, it is the self- chosen, and highly symbolic name and public self-identification as "Chicano/Chicana artists," as well as the social-aesthetic concerns of their works that binds them together in the creative waters of Contemporary American art.
The art which was documented in the slides which will accompany the packets, includes photographs of original works of art, but also many photographs of the very real interdisciplinary process and context in production and exhibition of Chicano art, which at times gives new meaning to the concept of the visual arts.
