Sunday with Warhol

A couple weekends ago, my parents, sister, and I stopped by the High Museum of Art to see the Andy Warhol Prints exhibit while it was in town.  I distinctly remember this print from a t-shirt my dad wore when I was little, so I’m happy my little family went all together.  It was super-crowded, making it a little difficult to see and appreciate everything, but I’m so glad we saw it at all!

The exhibit is arranged chronologically, so it was fun to see where Warhol’s art started and follow his creative development.  As you walk through, you get a look at his experimentation with different art techniques, his entrance into pop culture art, and his more adult works (there was a dedicated room, with warning signs!).  Here’s a little peek:

While I love what Warhol did with pop culture, I had never seen his early work and I really loved it!  His sketches were my favorite part of the whole exhibit, but it’s all worth a visit.  The exhibit is at the High until September 3.
