Lincoln Center Ticket 19 by Andy Warhol is a brightly colored representation of the entrance ticket for 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 interpretation of the Lincoln Center Ticket is a great example of Warhol’s adaptation of everyday objects into works of art.

Lincoln Center Ticket 19 by Andy Warhol as Part of his Larger Body of Work

Warhol used a number of different objects from his every day life and elevated them to objects of high art. Lincoln Center Ticket is a beautiful example of this. Just like the Brillo Boxes, 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 a 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.
