COLUMBUS, GA.- The Warhol in Southern Collections exhibition is on display through October 13, 2013 in the Third Floor Galleries at the Columbus Museum.

Andy Warhol was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He embraced popular culture and commercial processes to produce work that appealed to the general public. Most famously associated with the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, Warhol and the other Pop artists, were drawn to printmaking techniques, particularly silk-screening, because of its mechanical, mass-produced effect. His screenprints of Marilyn Monroe, soup cans, and other popular culture images became synonymous with Pop Art and are still some of the most recognizable images ever produced. Warhol’s unconventional sense of style and eccentric personality helped him reach mega-star status, leaving a permanent impression on American culture and Modern art.

Warhol in Southern Collections features over 100 works from museums and private collectors throughout the South, produced during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, including the famous Campbell’s Soup can series and brightly colored Marilyn Monroe prints. Life-size resin and acrylic sculptures of Andy Warhol created by contemporary artist Jack Dowd welcome visitors at the entrance to the gallery.

Warhol created many of his works in his New York studio called “The Factory.” Visitors can experience hands-on activities in a Factory-inspired interactive space in the exhibit through: exploration of the silkscreen process from a "Warholed" version of the Rembrandt Peale portrait of George Washington in the Museum's collection, illustrating reproduction Campbell’s Soup cans and Brillo boxes, creation of multiple "Warholed" images at a textured rubbing station of pieces in the Museum’s collection, watch video footage of Warhol, and explore the interactive kiosk for more information about the artists of the Pop Art movement.

As an American art and regional history museum, and the second largest general museum in Georgia, the Columbus Museum offers a diverse collection to the public.
