For the past 50 years, Bay Area art collectors Harry and Mary Margaret Anderson have passionately assembled one of the most outstanding private collections of 20th-century post-war American art in the world. On September 21, more than 100 extraordinary works from their collection will be on view in a new museum adjacent to the Cantor Arts Center: the Anderson Collection at Stanford University.

To celebrate its new neighbor, the Cantor presents an exhibition of spectacular Pop Art works. The show, "Pop Art from the Anderson Collection at SFMOMA,"  runs August 13, 2014 through October 26, 2015.
