The Case For Andy Warhol

You’ve heard his name. You’ve seen the Campbell’s Soup cans. You might know something about The Factory. But perhaps you’ve wondered why Andy Warhol gets so much attention or why his work even matters. What’s the deal with Warhol, and is he worth your time and consideration? Here’s your answer.

Stay tuned for cases for other artists, living and dead! Next up: Mark Rothko.

Throwback Thursday to May 1973, when artist Rockne Krebs shot lasers from the Museum’s East Terrace to mirrors along the Parkway every evening, from dusk until midnight, in a project called Sky Bridge Green. To see more pictures from this project and by Krebs, visit our current Minimalism installation.
