Warhol: Flowers in the Factory
February 11 : 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until June 30, 2018
Consummately cosmopolitan and cool, Andy Warhol in the great outdoors seems like an oxymoron. Yet the groundbreaking artist known for his Pop Art multiples of celebrities and soup cans created more than 10,000 images of flowers over the course of his career. Warhol: Flowers in the Factory showcases the surprising, and little examined, role of nature in Warhol’s art and life. Featuring original screen prints, archival photographic reproductions and horticultural display, he spectacular 15-acre tropical setting of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens on Sarasota Bay will provide a matchless context for examining Warhol’s fascination with the natural world in this focused, immersive exhibition.
