I needed to recover from a stressful morning meeting, so I hastily made arrangements to visit the popular Andy Warhol: Revisited temporary exhibition later in the day.
I am grateful for the reprieve because after viewing the artwork, I am reminded that being an artist is a process. What better way to reassess setbacks by paying homage to one of your professional idols at a venue who opens its doors to the public to marvel at his works 30 years after his death?
Andy Warhol: Revisited is a museum-style exhibition at Bergamot Station’s Revolver Gallery in Santa Monica. It began on February 14th, 2017 and will run through mid-May, 2017. Since Revolver Gallery is solely dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Andy Warhol’s legacy, its exhibition includes many original Warhol’s iconic prints and paintings such as the Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s soup cans. Also featured are rare, lesser known works of Warhol that dealt with themes of war, death, religion and politics — “Energy Power” and “Paratrooper Boots” — as well as works created by Warhol collaborators (such as Keith Haring and Chris Makos) and contemporary artists (Jack Dowd and Deborah Kass) as a homage to Warhol’s legacy.
The exhibition is free to the public (by reservation only). Check out the Collection when you can by making your free online reservations here. Note: weekends are fully booked while weekday slots are wide open, so please plan accordingly.
If you are unable to come see the Collection, below is a comprehensive coverage of the exhibition as featured on KTLA, a Los Angeles local news station. Not the same, but you know, life happens.
