LINCOLN, NE.- The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Sheldon Museum of Art presents "Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists," the first major exhibition devoted to the work of female Pop artists.

Pop art, more than any other post-World War II art movement, is defined by a small group of American and British male artists. This show, featuring some work that hasn't been exhibited in more than 40 years, explores the important contributions of women Pop artists.

These female artists found inspiration in many of the same subjects as men, including advertising, celebrities and commercial culture, but they also brought their own experiences to the movement, creating collaborative works, emphasizing handcrafted objects and developing new mediums, such as soft sculpture.

Artists in the exhibition include Idelle Weber, Rosalyn Drexler, Dorothy Grebenak, Chryssa, Marjorie Strider and Vija Celmins, among others.

Sheldon will hold two gallery talks during the course of the show.

Christin Mamiya, associate dean of UNL's Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, will give a lecture titled "A Woman's Work is Never Done: Pop Art and the Home" at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 31.

Sid Sachs, exhibition curator, will give a lecture titled "The Inevitability of Pop" at Sheldon at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 14. The lectures will take place in the Sheldon's Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium and are free and open to the public.

"Seductive Subversion" is organized by the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery at The University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
