If there’s one holiday that I envy Americans for, it has to be Thanksgiving. Christmas comes in a close second, because you have to give it to them: no one does Christmas like they do. Well, except for part of my online Christmas posse, like Stephanie whose holiday playlist on Spotify is a must.
I thought I knew all there is to know about his work (like most of us do, I presume), but I was surprised to learn that there is much more to his work than the famous Marilyn Monroe images.
The exhibition is a production of the Andy Warhol Museum of Pittsburgh and is host to a total of about 130 pieces, including works from a number of Belgian private collectors.
Part of the exhibition is dedicated to the connection Warhol had with religion, which might come as a surprise to many of us (including me), but his more famous works also have their spot.
I was really impressed with how the exhibition was curated and the interactive parts, such as the PopMaton, make it really accessible.
