Exploring the works of Warhol

by Evi Arthur / Editor-in-Chief

Upon entering the Art Institute’s newest exhibit, “Andy Warhol—From A to B and back again,” visitors are greeted with pink and yellow cow-printed wallpaper plastered just below portraits of famous faces. Opened on Oct. 20, the exhibit is a collection of 400 pieces of work Warhol completed over the course of his life—including prints, drawings, paintings, sculptures and personal memorabilia. The pieces display Warhol’s struggle against the confines of societal expectations and his admiration for cheap and easily recliplicatable consumer products of the mid 1900s. The exhibit showcases some of Warhol’s most prominent works of art, including his iconic block-color prints of Campbell’s soup cans and celebrities such as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. Admission is $7, and the exhibit will run until Jan. 26, 2020.
