N.Y. artist brings ‘The Modern Pop Art Experience’ to town

New York artist Michael Albert comes to Morgantown this week for a pop-up workshop with The Arts Council of Greater Morgantown (ACGM).

Albert regularly hosts collage workshops for artists and art educators under his traveling workshop program, “The Modern Pop Experience.”

Known for his cereal box collages, a series of more than 500 pop-cubist portraits, Albert calls his style of work “Cerealism,” or “a cross between Picasso’s Cubism and Warhol’s Pop.”

Join Albert and the ACGM Friday at the Art Co-op, 131 Pleasant St., in downtown Morgantown.

Albert will host two creative sessions — one from 10 a.m.-noon and a second from 2-4 p.m. The workshops are free, open to the public with limited space, and will offer guidance for interested artists and arts educators on how to engage children in creative collage-making and assist them in exploring their artistic abilities. Supplies will be provided.

To RSVP, email ACGM Creativity Connector Jordan Brigman at
