New York City and its Artists

Museum Ludwig

The rebels came to New York City to make art and meet other artists. As the center of the art world shifted from Paris to New York, New York City became the arty place-to-be. All major 20th century contemporary art movements began there; from the wild abstract expressionists, to the spiritually refined art of Mark Rothko and the Minimalism of Frank Stella. Is Andy Warhol’s glitter Pop Art conceivable without New York City?  This was the place that gave rise to Op Art, Photorealism, Kitsch and Graffiti Art too. Why was New York City such a magnet? What kind of synergy effects took place and how? Museum Ludwig’s collection in the second floor, provides brilliants examples to explore these and other questions about “The Cultural Capital of America!”
