The Pop artist James Rosenquist captures the hyperbright, supersaturated colors of commercial culture in his paintings. Kurt and Mr. Rosenquist tour a retrospective of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The paintings stretch back to the 1960's and contain a surreal montage of lipsticks and bleaches and dishes and fighter jets and car parts and cola labels. The exhibit is currently showing at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Kurt begins by asking him about his background as a billboard painter. Produced by David Krasnow.
