Andy Warhol: The Athlete Series MOCA Calgary

Pat and I attended the opening night of the MOCA exhibit, Andy Warhol: The Athlete Series.  It was a terrific event and I was not only thrilled to see the Warhol works, but also the really competent and entertaining pieces by Chris Cran, Billy McCarroll, John Wills and others.

Andy WarholIf you have the chance, I encourage you to take in this exhibit.  Thanks to MOCA for the hospitality…good music…a festive drink…even the red carpet.  OH!  And let us NOT forget our local Warhol impersonator who stayed in role for the duration!

From Visit Calgary,

“The Weisman Warhol collection is complemented by Great Moments in Pop: a selection of Warhol works which represent many phases of the artist’s career generously loaned from Calgary private collections. The theme is enhanced by the work of respected Calgary artists that reflect upon the multiple themes of sport and art as well as homages, riffs and variations upon signature Warhol themes and styles (including Shelley Oullet, Chris Cran, John Will and Billy McCarroll). The exhibition presents the full suite of 10 Warhol paintings, the Athlete Series featuring portraits of: Muhammed Ali, O.J. Simpson, Pele, Jack Nicklaus, Dorothy Hamill, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chris Evert, Tom Seaver, Willie Shoemaker, and Rod Gilbert.”
