The traveling exhibit ‘Letters to Andy Warhol’ will be in the Design District’s Palm Court all this week. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Andy Warhol Museum and, for some reason, Cadillac.
The collaborative project between the brand and the cultural institution celebrates Warhol’s legacy through imaginative, co-created content and experiences. The exhibition features rarely seen material from the museum’s archive, including artwork and Warhol’s personal correspondence, plus artistic contributions from several modern-day cultural creators. Together, the works explore recurring themes from the Warhol’s body of work such as the blurring of art and commerce and the trials of fame. The result is an examination of not only Warhol, the American icon, but also Warhol the multi-faceted, sensitive and ambitious artist who reached for inspiration across the colliding worlds of fashion, music, media, art and celebrity.
Here’s what Vogue thought about it when it was it New York in December.
