Lincoln Center Ticket 1967
Andy Warhol’s Lincoln Center Ticket 1967 is a brightly colored representation of the New York Film Festival at the Lincoln Center. The piece is reminiscent of the work we expect to see from Warhol. With bright pinks, reds and blues, this reinterpretation of the Lincoln Center Ticket is a great example of Warhol’s adaptation of everyday objects into works of art. Warhol also did an unsigned edition of 500 on paper that have slightly different color variations.
Lincoln Center Ticket FS III19 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK:
Andy Warhol used a number of different objects from his every day life and eleveated them to objects of high art. This Lincoln Center Ticket is a beautiful example of this. Just like the Brillo Boxes, or Soup Cans, or the SAS Passenger Ticket, Warhol took these objects and put a pop art twist on them. By adding bright colors, and changing them slightly, they went from an object in your home or wallet, to a piece hung on the wall of a museum. Also, Warhol had a very close connection to films, making many in the later part of his career, so it makes sense that he would like to commemorate the Fifth New York Film Festival with this Lincoln Center Ticket.
