Artisphere to feature Andy Warhol installation
Wednesday - 7/17/2013, 4:19am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Andy Warhol's "Silver Clouds" creation is coming to the Artisphere arts center in Arlington, Va.
On Wednesday, Artisphere is announcing an exhibition of 150 of Warhol's "clouds" in a free show planned for September and October. The installation is being loaned by the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.
Warhol first exhibited "Silver Clouds" in 1966. It was the product of Warhol's collaboration with electrical engineer Billy Kluver from Bell Labs, combining art and technology. It began as an idea for a "floating light bulb." Warhol ended up making helium-filled clouds from material at Bell Labs.
Artisphere is launching a crowd-funding campaign to raise $10,000 to support the exhibit.
"Silver Clouds" opens Sept. 12 in Arlington, Va. Artisphere says this is the first time it's been shown in the Washington area.
