Pop Art on Pop Bottles

I just visited the pop-art exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Two exhibits I hadn’t seen before fascinated me for different reasons.  The first because I’m taking a drawing class. The effectiveness of this minimalist drawing comes from the ability of the artist to pick out the identifying characteristics that prompt recognition.

And the second because I used to collect pop bottles and take them to the store for the 3 cent refund.  It never occurred to me to read them, let alone look for secret messages.

Then again, they were tricky to read when empty.
