Warhol on Vinyl (travels to Florida)

I had waited until there was an official announcement to post this, but here it is, and this is going to be so much cooler than I ever imagined.

Here is the official description of two concurrent shows at the Boca Museum of Art in Boca Raton, Florida next year:

January 25 – April 30, 2016

Warhol on Vinyl: The Record Covers, 1949-1987

Throughout Warhol’s long career he produced 60 unique album cover designs for an extremely diverse range of music ranging from Tchaikovsky and Gershwin, Count Basie and Artie Shaw, to the Rolling Stones and the Velvet Underground. This exhibition organized by the Cranbrook Art Museum includes over 100 album covers, wallpaper, video and sound.
January 25 – April 30, 2016

Warhol Prints from the Collection of Marc Bell

The complete silkscreen suites from the collection of Marc Bell will accompany the Warhol on Vinyl exhibition. It will include the iconic soup cans, images of Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, and Mao as well as Warhol’s flowers, dollar signs, and camouflage.

I am so excited at this unexpected pairing. I hope this gives thousands of people who weren’t able to make it to Michigan last year a chance to see this unique collection of Warhol’s treasures. I will definitely go to see the show and see if I am allowed to document the experience with photos to share.

I hope that the exposure this show brings will inspire other museums to continue this exhibitions travels. If I hear of anything new, I will post the news here first.

  1. Great news Frank, i’m very happy for you! Your amazing collection really deserves a better fate than to be stored away in boxes. Hope this is the beginning of a long journey!

    I have a copy of an EP by Harold Coates on Camden CAE-177 titled, “Famous Songs From Famous Musicals Vol. 2”. The art work sure resembles AW.
