Accessible Pop

Art can be found anywhere. Art is on museum walls and bathroom stalls, displayed in bars and on subway cars. Art is in the earth, in the clouds, in a flower and crap like that. And sometimes "rare and affordable prints" of modern art juggernauts are available at the Saks Fifth Avenue in the Galleria. Irony is dead, and as a society we don't bat an eyelash at the prospect of buying pieces by Warhol, Keith Haring, Mel Ramos or Steve Kaufman in between ice-skating and a slice from Sbarro. So while you're returning that executive humidifier for store credit at Sharper Image, swing by Saks and snag yourself a Roy Lichtenstein to hang in the john. Legendary Iconographers of Pop Culture runs through May 31 at The Martin Lawrence Gallery in the Dallas Galleria, 13550 Dallas Parkway. Admission is free.
