Andy Warhol Exhibition @ the HIGH
@ the High Museum of Art that is
Even if you're not the artsy person in the room, I would be shocked if you told me you haven't heard of Andy Warhol.
Warhol was a leading figure in the pop art movement. His work drew inspirations from celebrities, culture, sex, death, and Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup - many other soups actually. This exhibition showcases over 250 of Warhol's prints, which portrays the creative evolution of Warhol over the course of four decades. Warhol has often been described as a peculiar guy, often challenging the status quo. He experimented with the art of repetition and the mass reproduction of his artwork, straying away from traditional customs of producing and identifying original works.
I love art and I really enjoyed this showcase. Pop Art isn't my preferred style but there were definitely some really cool, interesting work. This exhibit was lively, chaotic, and vibrant. In this exhibition you can expect to find Marilyn Monroe, the Birmingham civil rights protest, Mao Zedong, Campbell's Soup, One Blue Pussy, and Andy Warhol himself. The High Museum of Art will have this exhibit until September 3, 2017, and I would highly advise taking a tour while it's around.
