Exclusive Warhol Exhibition Opened at the New Johnson Center for the Arts
Andy Warhol, John Wayne.
TROY.- The Johnson Center for the Arts located in downtown Troy, Alabama, in conjunction with the Warhol Museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, will feature an exhibition by Andy Warhol. Exclusive to The Johnson Center for the Arts, Alabama's first Andy Warhol retrospective brings together an outstanding selection of prints that capture a variety of subjects including celebrity, novelty, ordinary and the artist himself. The retrospective features a selection of works that span Warhol's most influential three decades of the 60's, 70's and 80's. The exhibition will be highlighted by The Center's Grand Opening to be held at 2PM on September 14th.

One of the most important artists of the late twentieth century and the icon of Pop Art, Andy Warhol created some of the most recognizable image of modern culture. The exhibition includes celebrity prints including Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, and Muhammed Ali, as well as other important works such as Hammer & Sickle, Details of Renaissance Paintings and his Campbell's soup cans. The exhibition will feature some of Warhol's commercial work including the well known Volkswagen Ad. The retrospective will also include a sample of how the artist viewed himself and his art through a Self-Portrait.

In addition to works from The Andy Warhol Museum, the exhibitions showing at The Johnson Center for the Arts include "Drive" a multimedia exhibit by Sara Dismukes, "Mementos" by Pam Allen, "Recent Works" paintings by Jim Campbell and selections from both the Brantley family and Corley Chapman, Jr's collections.

The Johnson Center for the Arts is housed in a historic, turn-of-the-century treasure that served as a post office for three generations.
