Art Notes

Somehow, Silver Clouds completely escaped my attention. This Thursday, Andy Warhol's Mylar pillows will be displayed at Artisphere and the exhibit will run through October.

This is a delightful installation, especially for those of us magpies who are attracted to shiny things. Being from Pittsburgh I was lucky to enjoy Silver Clouds when I was a teen, right when the Warhol Museum opened. It was an exciting look at '60s counterculture for a suburban girl. We saw weird silent films and Velvet Underground ephemera.

If you happen to be in Warhol's home town this winter, the Carnegie International, an exhibition of international artists started in the late 19th Century by Andrew Carnegie, is running from October-March. This is a highly recommended event!
