Pop culture meets fine art, Crocker Art Museum assistant curator Christie Hajela reviews the hallucinatory images displayed in the recent exhibition ‘Atomic Cocktail’ by American artist Todd Schorr.
Born in 1954, Schorr began his career as a professional illustrator in New York City, creating album covers, movie posters and magazine covers for clients like AC/DC, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and Time.
