Joe Brainard is one of the lesser-known Pop Art artists. The Alex Katz Foundation gave Colby 20 mixed-media works from Brainard’s If Nancy Was series, an amusing but rather dated project in which the artist portrayed the rolly-polly cartoon character Nancy as everything from a ball to a rumpled Kleenex, the New York City skyline, and a head on Mt. Rushmore.

The Whistler exhibition features prints from the collection of Peter and Paula Lunder, now the Colby museum’s primary benefactors. The American Folk Art show is part of the state-wide Maine Folk Art Trail discussed in the June 11 posting of Just Looking. From Early American to Post-Modern, the Colby College Museum of Art offers something this summer for every taste.

Colby College Museum of Art, 5600 Mayflower Hill, Waterville ME, 207-859-5600.
