NASHVILLE, TENN. – July 19, 2011 – The Frist Center will offer a $2.00 discount on
admission to Warhol Live: Music and Dance in Andy Warhol’s Work each Monday through Sept. 5, 2011, with the donation of Campbell’s Soup to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Visitors may bring cans of Campbell’s Soup to the Second Harvest bin located at Visitor Services, and receive a $2.00 discount on admission the day of their visit.
Inspired by Andy Warhol’s work Campbell’s Soup Cans, which is included in the exhibition, the discount was prompted by a suggestion offered through Twitter.
About Warhol Live
Warhol Live presents a comprehensive exploration of the artist’s work as experienced through the lens of music and dance.
Over the course of his meteoric career, Andy Warhol (1928–1987) used the medium of music to transform himself from fan to record album designer, producer, celebrity nightclubber, and rock impresario. Warhol Live presents a comprehensive exploration of the artist’s work as experienced through the lens of music and dance. This exhibition juxtaposes major pieces (Elvis, Marilyn, Liza Minnelli, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, the Self-portraits and the Campbell’s Soup Cans) with lesser-known works inspired by music and the performing arts (album covers, illustrations, photos and Polaroids), along with films and sound recordings, which provide a visual and aural score to Warhol’s extraordinary work and life. The exhibition includes nearly 300 works, including objects and documents from the artist’s personal archives.
