Warhol goes on display tomorrow at the Washington Pavilion

While I am very excited about seeing this exhibit (and paying an entrance fee). I doubt I will see anything new. But for those of you that are not familiar with Andy’s work, I encourage you to go, and take the kids. The exhibit comes from Andy’s official museum in Pittsburgh and Augustana will also have some of his polaroids on display. I have often said Andy’s biggest contributions were in music and film and his art was how he made a living. Don’t get me wrong, I love his art and am heavily influenced by him.

If you are intrigued or inspired after viewing the exhibit I recommend some light reading 🙂 DIARIES • KILL ME

I was fortunate enough to meet and have dinner with Richard Weisman who was personal friends with Andy and commissioned Warhol’s Sports Series that came to the Pavilion a few years back. He befriended my friend Paige Turner that night and she was invited to his Seattle home. She said in the guest bedroom where she stayed a Rothko hung above her head. Still mad she didn’t invite me to come along, I could have pretended to be gay for a couple of days.
