There’s never been a better excuse for art-lovers to ‘pop’ to Las Vegas, as the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art has announced that it is extending its popular ‘Warhol Out West’ exhibition until January 2.
The BGFA’s exhibition was originally set to last only until October, but due to the overwhelming positive response it has received from art-lovers from across the globe, it will now run until January 2.
The BGFA is also adding works from Warhol's 1985 advertisement series to the exhibition, such as Mobil, Life Savers, Blackglama (Judy Garland) and Volkswagon. These will be added beside what is perhaps Warhol's most iconic painting from the advertisement series, Campbell's Soup.
Cashman PhotoCurrently, the exhibit houses 56 of Warhol's works, including those from his 1960s’ pop paintings of celebrities, his 1980s’ advertisement series, and the famed Double Elvis painting. Perhaps the gem of the whole collection is his Cowboys and Indians series, which is rarely showcased.
The ‘Warhol Out West’ exhibition is the only Warhol collection in the United States apart from the one in the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.
Tickets cost $16, or $13 for Nevada residents and those aged 65 and older. Children 12-year-old or younger are admitted for free.
