Warhol Museum

Another bonus that came along with this trip was my visit to the Warhol Museum last night. Amazing! To be able to see an artist's entire career by looking at all of his original work was a stunning experience. Of course, I also enjoyed the exhibits dealing with the cultural atmosphere of New York during his residence, particularly the concert fliers for bands like Television, Suicide, the Contortions, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, and Patti Smith. The museum was definitely the high point of the trip, so far.

Mark,

Why do you like Warhol? We didn't finish our chat about it all. What did you bring away from the museum? I knew about the oxidation paintings Warhol did - as well as the silkscreens, but I really enjoyed reading the personal letters from Gerard Malanga and others that were in cases.

The Warhol was great. I'll post pics in my blog when I load 'em in.

I should have went along. I blame it all on my inability to handle heat.
