Walk through the exhibit “Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again”, enjoy Food, drinks, DJ, photobooth, Disco and more. Held in the the Sculpture Court, it is a beautiful space that fronts Genesee Street and serves as an entry way to the current Andy Warhol Exhibition that will serve as our dance floor for the night. Stay Tuned here for all the party photos and videos tonight!
The exhibition has 63 works of art, created at different points in Warhol’s career, including advertising, celebrity portraits, flowers, camouflage and more. The exhibition also features Warhol’s wallpaper with cows and his silver mylar balloon clouds.
Because Warhol was an astute observer of social mores, his artwork at once captures and reflects the gloss of packaging and marketing has mushroomed in post-World War II America. That rampant consumerism continues to define the United States in the new century demonstrates the power of Warhol’s insight. [Mary Murray MWPAI Curator]
DJ Rich Styles
DJ Styles spins out of Binghamton where he is a fixture on the club scene and is a favorite of throwback and disco themes parties.
Donna Summer. Gloria Gaynor. The Village People. Their songs and many others were heard in disco clubs everywhere during the Studio 54 era. The Utica area was no exception. These were the hottest Central New York disco clubs to see and be seen at during the height of disco.
