I saw pop art the same way I saw everything else: there was an effort to personalize art, to do away with academic art. Pop art was derived from our present culture, our canned goods, our comic strips. I warmed up to pop art right away because I wanted our art to speak of us, just as I wanted our music to speak of us. Everything was going in that direction; that was part of the excitement. We sensed that there was beauty, dignity, a significance in things that so much of the world found vulgar or infantile. Not at all, it was our world, why not celebrate it?
