Friday To-Do: 'Andy Warhol: 15 Weeks of Fame'

Posted By on Fri, Oct 17, 2008 at 9:39 AM



‘ANDY WARHOL: 15 WEEKS OF FAME'
10 a.m.-5 p.m., Arkansas Arts Center. $8-$12.

Only 44 years after Andy Warhol exhibited his first “Brillo” box, the Arkansas Arts Center opens on Friday the state's first comprehensive show of art by the pop genius. With his “Brillo” box replicas in cardboard and wood, Warhol declared that if an artist makes it and intends it to be art, it is art. Serigraphs of Marilyn Monroe and Campbell's split pea soup, paintings, drawings, screen tests from his films, the “Silver Clouds” installation of silver mylar pillow-shaped balloons and screen tests — they're all in the show, thanks to a partnership between the Arts Center and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Penn. The exhibit runs through Feb. 1; for a preview, check out “recent videos” on our homepage.
