Atlanta Moms online magazine announces the arrival of the Andy Warhol exhibit at the High Museum of Art showing now through September 3.
Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was a cutting edge artist who established the genre known as Pop Art. His work had overt political and cultural messages: The Campbell Soup series was shown in 1962 and arranged on a shelf around the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. This series along with the Coca-Cola bottles and Brillo box images were meant “to convey his belief in the democratic appeal of American consumerism.”
The iconic Marilyn Monroe, Mao, Mohammed Ali, and dozens of other print portraits defined his career and solidified him as an iconic figure in his own right.
The exhibit comes from the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and will be at the High Museum through September 3.
