“Since its opening in February, ‘Warhol Out West’ has welcomed visitors from around the world and across all generations,” said Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of BGFA. “We’ve had an incredibly positive response and want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to see this unique collection, which spans Warhol’s multifaceted career.”

The collection, organized in partnership with The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, is the artist’s depiction of all things Western. Noted as one of the most influential Pop artists in the visual art movement, Warhol’s depiction of celebrities, advertisements, comic books and brand products creatively illustrate the realm of popular culture. Warhol’s 1960s Pop paintings of celebrities and consumer products are part of the exhibit along with the memorable “Double Elvis” painting and “Cowboys and Indians” series. With 56 pieces, the collection showcases paintings, sculptures, photographs, screen prints and wallpaper.
