NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s exhibition Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television travels back to the years from the1940s to the mid-1970s to explore how avant-garde art influenced the look and content of early network TV. Highlighting the visual revolution ushered in by American television and modernist art and design of the 1950s and 1960s, Revolution of the Eye features fine art and graphic design by such renowned artists as Roy Lichtenstein, Georgia O’Keeffe and Andy Warhol, along with ephemera, TV memorabilia and clips from historic television programs and film, including Batman, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Ernie Kovacs Show, Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In, and The Twilight Zone.
