He was the man who turned the Campbell’s soup can on its head, immortalized Marilyn Monroe, reinvented the visual arts scene forever, and famously said, “life is a series of images that change as they repeat themselves.” Now, original works by the famed artist Andy Warhol are coming exclusively to Minneapolis, and art lovers have the chance to get their paws on a piece of art history.
Christie’s auction house has partnered with Aria at the Jeune Lune to bring an exclusive sales exhibit of the artist’s work to Aria from March 16-23. The event will be the first private Warhol sales exhibit in the United States. According to the Pipress, the selection will include more than 50 paintings, photographs, and prints—some of them featured at Warhol’s last Minneapolis show in 1974. (Attendees should keep their eyes peeled for Warhol’s famed self-portraits and a screen print of none other than Marilyn Monroe.) Admission is free, and sales benefit the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
