Ever consider pasting a Big Mac wrapper onto a canvas? Then youve pondered entering the artistic realm of pop art. The genre, defined by an artists use of images and physical items found in popular culture, is like candy: yummy, often colorful, and utterly indulgent when consumed in large doses. Pinecrest Gardens latest exhibit and sale, Garden Pop, will appeal to your sweet tooth with a collection of original works from world-renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Donald Sultan alongside those of locals Romero Britto, Purvis Young, Erika King, and Eileen Seitz. Opening nights cocktail reception at the gardens Saturday would have gotten you some live music, grub, and gratis Bacardi for a cool $100. But you, my frugal friend, can see the exhibit for free this Sunday through November 25. Park hours are noon to 5 p.m.
