Whenever I’m traveling, I usually try to visit at least one art museum during my trip. While in the Bay Area at the end of July, I had a chance to spend the morning at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where I caught their featured exhibit: “Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again” (which ended early last week).
I actually saw this exhibit when it first opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, but I really enjoy Warhol’s work (and am a fan of pop art overall), so I was eager to check it out again and excited to discover new things about the artist and the pieces that perhaps I didn’t notice before.
Below are pics of some of my favorite Warhol works from the exhibit. I’ve always loved his celebrity portraits, and if I could, I’d hang his cow wallpaper in my home — complete with huge prints of his flowers. His use of color never ceases to amaze and inspire me. And of course his collaborations with Basquiat are incredible, and if I was a billionaire, you’d find them on display in my mansion.
One day, I’d love to visit The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (his hometown). But until then, I’ll be keeping an eye out for any special installations closer to home.
