Dallas Historical Society debuts the art exhibit “Historic American Pop” by Laura Roosevelt, great-granddaughter of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, and Dallas native.

Roosevelt specializes in abstract mixed media painting.  As an artist, she is known for her layering technique. Her passion for history has pioneered a new form of American art with her “Historic American Pop” series. The pieces incorporate iconic photographs with textured, abstract backgrounds, reshaping the experience of those moments frozen in time.

The exhibit “Historic American Pop by Laura Roosevelt- A Collaborated Historical Perspective of Abstract Art and the Words of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt” features Roosevelt’s art along with Eleanor and Franklin’s words, chosen by her sister Elizabeth Roosevelt Kelly and their late great-aunt Chandler Roosevelt. Laura’s website is www.lrarthouse.com.
