Duchamp to Pop at the Norton Simon Museum
During a recent visit to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena California I was excited to see the Duchamp to Pop exhibit. I've always been a fan of Pop so it was great to see some quality works of historical significance.
Marcel Duchamp seems to have had quite a relationship with the Pasadena Art Museum and Norton Simon as the seem to have a number of great works!

Andy Warhol created these 1969 reproductions of 1964 originals for a exhibition in Pasadena.
Some of the Soup Cans were on display.
Ed Ruscha's Annie, Poured Maple Syrup from 1966.
These were pretty cool. They are an addition of "prints" from Gemini Gel of Robert Rauschenberg's found cardboard pieces. These were carefully constructed and printed to resemble cardboard boxes that Rauschenberg had found near his studio.
A cool 1962 poster from an early Pop Art show in Pasadena.
