One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol, was at the forefront of the Pop Art movement. “Andy Warhol: Portraits” at The Phoenix Art Museum, examines Warhol’s interest in capturing the likeness of celebrities as well as himself. On display will be more than 170 objects, including more than 90 screen print printings, and more than 30 drawings, videos, paintings, and photographs from his student days in the 1940s to the New Wave–era 1980s. Also on view will be an installation of Warhol’s reflective Silver Clouds, helium and air-filled metalized balloons. The portrait subjects range from Prince and Queen Elizabeth II to Jackie Kennedy and Sylvester Stallone, along with many whose 15 minutes of fame has since faded. There are also several paintings, photographs, photo booth pictures, and Polaroids of Warhol himself that predate today’s fascination with “Selfies.” The Exhibit runs through June 21.
