Currently the Crocker Art Museum in Downtown Sacramento is displaying an Andy Warhol exhibit titled, "Portraits."
Andy Warhol’s lifelong fascination with celebrity and the art of portraiture is examined in this exhibition featuring 168 drawings, fashion sketches and paintings, photo-booth film strips, Polaroids, photographs, personal memorabilia and portrait paintings. From early fashion sketches to Warhol’s revolutionary use of media images, the power of the Warhol portrait is traced, revealing how the artist transformed this genre into the status symbol of an era.
We were fortunate enough to visit the museum the day it opened as it was an amazing experience. Check out the photos below and make sure you visit Crocker Art Museum. There are several other awesome exhibits besides Warhol.
The Andy Warhol exhibit lasts through June 19th.
