“WARHOL PRESENTS”
Through January 11 at The Everson Museum of Art [Syracuse, NY], this exhibit highlights the early commercial career of Andy Warhol, whose whimsical drawings from the 1950s created fantasies that marketed fashion and glamour through evocation. Warhol’s penchant for combining art and advertisement quickly made him one of the most well known illustrators of women’s fashion in New York. The exhibition presents 18 of Warhol’s rarely seen shoe
illustrations and drawings of women’s accessories and fashion figures. Click here for details
