Ann Killion and I went to the Andy Warhol Museum today — Warhol grew up in Pittsburgh. The museum is a beautiful place in a beautiful part of this lovely city. And the museum has so much stuff. I was struck by how creative Warhol was, how many unique ideas he had. But I must admit I am not well-versed in art, so I have some questions for you. And I’d appreciate your help.
Do you like Warhol?
What did he contribute to the art scene?
Why did he create so many compositions with multiple images of one person — Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Mao. I could go on. Was he trying to say something?
What was the point of the Campbells soup cans?
