Looking at Andy Warhol's "Cowboys and Indians" and Roy Lichtenstein's "American Indian" in the "Radical Repetition: Albers to Warhol" exhibit at Whatcom Museum's Lightcatcher, 250 Flora St., one sees stylized interpretations that can be viewed both as a celebration and a stereotyping of native culture.
Museum staff will lead a discussion about art as a medium for creating myth and messages about culture, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at the Lightcatcher.
The exhibit, which runs through Aug. 17, examines recurring imagery in art since the 1960s. Although the exhibit concentrates on prints, it includes extraordinary works in painting and sculpture, too.
The discussion Thursday is free for non-members with $5 admission, and is free for museum members. Details: 360-778-8930 whatcommuseum.org.
