Factory Works

I'll be the first to admit that I really don't know all that much about Andy Warhol. I mean, I know he did the Campbell's soup painting and the banana album cover, but beyond that, my knowledge is limited to various random bits of trivia about how weird he was. I will say that the more I learn about him, the more I appreciate his work. (I will also say that David Bowie was awesome as Warhol in the movie Basquiat.) Warhol's effect on the art world in general cannot be denied. From his obvious influence in painting and sculpture to his more subtle influence in music and film, the Warhol aesthetic isn't hard to find. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Warhol's memorial service held at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, the Goss Gallery will showcase his works in all media, accompanied by images from the book Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died, which features photos taken at the memorial service by renowned fashion and portrait photographer Christophe von Hohenberg. It's a must-see event for even casual Warhol fans. Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died opens Friday and runs through through May 19 at the Goss Gallery, 2500 Cedar Springs Rd. Call 214-696-0555 or visit gossgallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 25. Continues through May 19
