Pop Artist, Andy Warhol!

50 Forward: New Additions to the Permanent Collection 
to learn about a world famous pop artist, Andy Warhol.

The exhibition presents a sample of the art objects that entered The Cummer’s collection in celebration of the Museum’s 50th Anniversary in 2011. After viewing several samples of his work in The Cummer galleries, then finding his work featured on the Art History timeline, my students view a slideshow of Andy Warhols work set to special music featuring the story of his life.  They were so excited to learn how to make Andy Warhol prints by using soft-cut linoleum and real printmaking tools and ink. Here are some images of my students as they create Pop Art - just like Andy Warhol!
