Art, featuring pop culture icons like Elton John, Michael Jackson and Andy Warhol, is hanging in the Raymond S. Wilkes Gallery for the Visual Arts for the next couple of months as part of a new exhibit. 

The exhibit by Lancaster’s own Wayne Williams is a compilation of Williams’ work in the area of pop culture art.

“Pop culture art is a broad term, but Wayne has focused on trendy things we see every day in society,” said OUL Development Director Mandi Custer, who helped arrange the exhibit. “The show looks great. Everything is black and white. People are going to see everything from Johnny Cash to Starbucks. Any of those cultural icons that you think of, chances are they are in this exhibition.”

The exhibit, called Pop Goes the Easel, opens Thursday, Sept. 18 at 5 p.m. The show is free and open to the public.

“Wayne is really a neat guy. He is a truck driver by day and an artist by night,” said Custer. “We are really excited to have him here.”

The exhibit will be on display from Sept. 18 to Dec. 12. The art gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
