(Mahwah) – In the world of art, Andy Warhol is a larger than life figure to many inside and outside the art world. To better understand this popular cultural hero, Tom Sokolowski, director of Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum, will discuss Warhol’s life and art Tuesday, March 4, at 7 p.m. in the Berrie Center’s Sharp Theater at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Admission is free.
Andy Warhol understood it all from sleaze to sainthood. He challenged the notion of originality, broke down the lines between high and low, and provided the clearest portrait of the American Dream between the ’60s and ’80s. He was and is a cultural icon,” Sokolowski said. Sokolowski’s talk will last approximately one hour.
The Andy Warhol Museum, housed in a renovated seven-floor warehouse building in Pittsburgh, displays more than 500 works of art, drawn from its extensive collections of works by Andy Warhol in all media, as well as from its huge archives and a collection of works by other artists.
