Private Opening of Rob Pruitt's 50th Birthday Bash at the Brant Center in Connecticut

Rob Pruitt and friends celebrated the opening of 'Rob Pruitt's 50th Birthday Bash' - an exhibition that is one part art exhibition and one part flea market on view at the Brant Foundation in Connecticut. Pruitt is an American post-pop artist who explores American youth and consumer culture. Working in painting, installation, and sculpture, he does not have a single style or medium. His pieces are humorous but seductive; critics debate whether he celebrates or critiques commercial culture. While he uses pop culture imagery, his work is intensely personal and biographical. The Brant Foundation Art Study Center is located 941 North Street, Greenwich Connecticut. photographs by Clint Spaulding/Patrick McMullan
