Andy Warhol: Headlines

Self Portrait, 1986

Did you know that ANDY WARHOL is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century? Or that Andy created the artistic medium known as Pop Art?

I didn’t either. That’s why I’m planning to see a new exhibit ANDY WARHOL: HEADLINES opening at the National Gallery of Art. The exhibit will feature paintings, photography, sculpture and film based on subjects from newspaper headlines.

In 1968, Andy proclaimed “in the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Talk about a prediction! I wonder what Andy would think of the world today with YouTube, Twitter and reality TV stars ruling the roost? It’s not hard to imagine that Andy would be thoroughly fascinated with social media because he loved pop culture and often used pop culture newsmakers in his work.
