A Little Bit About Micheal:
American Pop Artist & Author Michael Albert Touring the Eastern USA this Summer with Pop Art programs in over 85 cities in 11 States including 50 stops in New England!
Mr. Albert was born & raised on Long Island in New York and currently lives & works in White Plains, New York. Albert is the author of an artist autobiography titled, “An Artist’s America” (Henry Holt, 2008) and is nationally known for making collage artworks from Cereal boxes & other printed cardboard consumer brand packages. His work has been described as across between Pop Art, Cubism & Recycling.
Albert’s Pop is often referred to as “Modern” since he’s been creating it for the past 25 years and still creates new works on a regular basis, whereas the Pop Art movement began almost 70 years ago with the ‘old masters’ such as: Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and others who started creating art themed about everyday things (products & objects) & subjects (current events, etc). Albert’s “Portrait of An American Classic”, the Frosted Flakes Box Collage was his official beginning as a Modern Pop Artist back in 1996. He calls that collage, ’The Birth of Cerealism’! Since that breakthrough creation, he has created over 700 collages from Cereal boxes like this, and thousands more with different themes, all artworks using the same everyday materials. He says that his true goal in all of this work & effort is to create a masterpiece worthy of hanging in a major museum like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.
He will be bringing his nationally renowned “Modern Pop Art Experience” Art programs to over 85 cities in 11 states this summer including: Alabama, West Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts & Maine and he will also be making his first stops in Canada for some special international programs! He has been running this program for over a decade & has brought it to over 1,000 libraries, museums, arts events & schools in 43 states! He will be bringing the program to many cities for the first time this summer.
On this tour he will be visiting a half dozen cities in New Hampshire and this will be his first visit to Grantham!
The “Modern Pop Art Experience” generally includes an ARTIST APPEARANCE (Meet the Artist!), ARTIST TALK & PRESENTATION – where Mr. Albert Introduces himself to the group, shows examples of his works and tells the group about the project they are about to do, a HANDS-ON COLLAGE WORKSHOP where the participants get to create their own collages using the same materials he uses to create his serious works of art, and the 2-hour program finishes with a FREE POSTER GIVEAWAY & SIGNING – Mr. Albert brings about 20 different prints (which he has self-published in limited quantities) for the each participant to choose from as a special gift for coming to the event.
He will be running his famous art program for the Dunbar Free Library in Grantham, NH on Monday August 14th / Morning session 10am-12pm.
