I came across this story a few months ago on NPR about Color Field artists, and I really think this movement displays all the requirements for showing up in our future art history books.
- The artists are dying off, and are now gaining recognition.
- The works were created by a group of artists using "tradition breaking techniques." (think Pollock with purpose, and on a more massive scale)
- It's already been deemed as a reflection of the upbeat JFK era.
- And of course, somebody important in the art world decided it was important.
I'm no art historian, but I think I've got something here.
I actually really like this stuff too. I'm sure it would be neat to see in real life.
