This is the first exhibition to examine Andy Warhol’s enduring fascination with automobiles as products of American consumer society.  Featuring more than forty drawings, paintings, prints, photographs and related archival material spanning the years 1946 to 1986, the exhibition traces the development of Warhol’s work with cars throughout his career.  Warhol’s images, which have become icons of American contemporary art, include an array of familiar products, like Coca-Cola and Campbell’s Soup cans.  Automobiles were another, though lesser-known focus of his artistic interests.  Organized by New Jersey’s Montclair Art Museum and drawn extensively from the collections of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue that is available at our own Books & Books in the Museum lobby.
