Grand Rapids, MI
Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) has assumed iconic status as one of the most brilliant and influential artists of the 20th century. He mined American mass culture for his subjects and images, adapting the look of advertising, comic books, and magazines, in effect creating a mirror of popular culture. Organized by GRAM, this unique exhibition showcases Warhol’s celebration of America by bringing together a selection of unique paintings, prints, photographs, and even film of iconic American products and symbols like Coca Cola and the Empire State Building, of fictional characters like Superman, and of iconic Americans like Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, and Warhol himself. The exhibition is drawn from prestigious museum collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Andy Warhol Museum, GRAM, and other public and private sources.
