15 Minutes: From Image To Icon
Pennsylvania artist, Andy Warhol, changed how we view art. Inspired by pop culture, Warhol’s imagery defined the new age of fine art and influenced society, to in turn, be a creator of pop culture. This exhibition examines the artist’s inspiration, process, and wide influence to both fine and commercial art.
