October 2, 2020 Through January 24, 2021
From Campbell’s Soup to Mickey Mouse, and from comic strips to balloon dogs, POP Power from Warhol to Koons celebrates the evolution of Pop art, a perennial movement that revels in the new and the now, the celebrity and the commodity, and art made accessible for all. This exhibition focuses on leading contemporary figures such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and the Japanese master of the Neo-Pop Superflat style, Takashi Murakami, creatively shown alongside the likes of seminal American Pop leaders like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Robert Indiana, to name just a few.
Organized by the Taubman Museum of Art.

American Inheritance: Unpacking World War II
October 10, 2020 through May 23, 2021
Seventy-five years after the fighting stopped, evidence of the world’s deadliest global conflict can still be found in almost every home, community and aspect of American life. WWII legacies survive in suburban attics, memorialized in public spaces and the ways in which Americans view the world itself. Over the course of their lives, the men, women and children who experienced World War II first-hand passed down the triumphs and terrors that make up our American Inheritance. The MAC presents American Inheritance: Unpacking World War II, an exhibition of useable history that figuratively “unpacks” the legacy of an American generation’s response to crisis.
