How did pop art become popular?

It started out in the 1950s and hit its height during the 60s. It was a reaction against the status quo, as most art movements were, and reflected the changing American society. With the improving economy after WWII and increasingly materialistic culture of the US, pop art quickly became popular. The spread of television, pop music, and popular artists like Warhol and Lichtenstein helped this type of art flourish across the country.
