Pop art comes to the Guggenheim Museum in New York with the opening of the show "Six Painters and the Object," featuring the works of Jim Dine, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist and Andy Warhol. (Included in the show was Johns' 1958 work "Three Flags," pictured.) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art would have a companion show in July-August, "Six More," featuring West Coast artists.
