You don't have to tell Raymond Pettibon punk is dead. The fact that his brash, raw work-typically made in the spirit of shunning authority and good taste-is now the subject of a major museum exhibition proves it. Pettibon pounced on the international art scene in the 1980s with his scruffy drawings that crib liberally from music, politics, surfing, literature, typography, religion, Los Angeles, art history, sex, sports, movies and comic books-among other things. Be one of the first to see his new animation, only the second the artist has made, and a group of choice drawings.

Whitney Museum of American Art, 945 Madison Ave., (800) WHITNEY. Through Feb. 19.
