Art in the 1960s


Susan Rotilie


February 4, 2010

Institution Walker Art Center

This curriculum resource guide explores the art movements and cultural history associated with the 1960s. It is recommended for grades 5–12.

This Set explores four main art movements of the 1960s:

  1. Pop Art
  2. Minimalism
  3. 1960s art overseas
  4. Fluxus

Each section contains an introduction to the art movement, followed by themes within the movement, examples of artworks that illustrate the themes, and links to cultural artifacts associated with that movement. Artwork slides include information about the artwork followed by discussion questions. These questions address both the art and cultural history of that time.

This Set can be used in the classroom by Visual Arts teachers to engage students with the art of  the 1960s and encourage them to explore similar ideas in their work today.

Social Studies teachers can use this resource to provide a new point of view for this interesting decade in the United States and internationally. 

It can also be used as pre- or post-tour study before visiting the exhibition 1964 on view at the Walker through October 24, 2010.
