The joys of Christmastime in Chicago are not all related to the holiday. The amazing Art Institute of Chicago – whose iconic lions are decked out for the season – is a guaranteed home run no matter what time of year you visit. My Christmas week visit this year happened to coincide with the museum’s latest major exhibition of the work of Andy Warhol, Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again, which I attended yesterday and it is wonderful.

About Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again at the Art Institute of Chicago:

“This major retrospective—the first to be organized by a US institution in 30 years—builds on the wealth of new research, scholarship, and perspectives that has emerged since Andy Warhol’s early death at age 58 in 1987. More than 400 works offer a new view of the beloved and iconic American Pop artist, not only illuminating the breadth, depth, and interconnectedness of Warhol’s production across the entirety of his career but also highlighting the ways that he anticipated the issues, effects, and pace of our current digital age. Warhol gained fame in the 1960s for his Pop masterpieces, widely known and reproduced works that often eclipse his equally significant late work as well as his crucial beginnings in the commercial art world. This exhibition brings together all aspects and periods of his varied and prolific career and includes paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, videos, archival and printed material, installation, films, and media works.”

Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again continues at the Art Institute of Chicago through January 26, 2020.

The great Art Institute of Chicago is located at 111 South Michigan Avenue in the great city of Chicago USA.
