Pepperdine’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art opened its doors to a two-floor Andy Warhol exhibit showcasing more than 80 of his pieces, including iconic collections such as Campbell Soup Cans, Flowers, and Marilyn Monroe, as well as other series inspired by his obsession with celebrities and popular culture—such as Muhammad Ali, the Wicked Witch, and Uncle Sam. The opening reception of the exhibit was held from 5-7pm on Saturday, Jan 16, and was open to the public.
Michael Zakian, Weisman Museum director and Art History professor said it took close to two years to put it all together.
In addition to silkscreen paintings, the walls of the museum are peppered with Andy Warhol quotes and strategically-placed placards revealing information about the artist’s life and career.
Bank of America’s Art in our Communities® program is sponsoring the Weisman Museum’s exhibition, which is open every Sunday to Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., until April 3rd.
