Berlant was instrumental in establishing the aesthetic sensibility of the West Coast Pop Art movement. He was part of the seminal 1963 exhibition Pop Art USA at the Oakland Museum of Art, one of the earliest exhibitions of Pop Art that also included Berlant’s contemporaries Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Claes Oldenburg. Berlant has exhibited across the United States, with solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston. Works by Berlant are held in numerous prominent collections, including Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Art Institute of Chicago; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
