Book Club The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure by Deborah Davis

June 29, 2017, 6:00 pm

Book Club The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure by Deborah Davis

June 29, 2017, 6:00 pm

Join the museum’s book club for a discussion of The Trip: Andy Warhol’s Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure by Deborah Davis. The book chronicles a little-known road trip Andy Warhol took from New York to LA in 1963, and how that journey—and the numerous artists and celebrities he encountered—profoundly influenced his life and art.

In 1963, up-and-coming artist Andy Warhol took a road trip across America. What began as a madcap, drug-fueled romp became a journey that took Warhol on a kaleidoscopic adventure from New York City, across the vast American heartland, all the way to Hollywood and back.

With locations ranging from a Texas panhandle truck stop to a Beverly Hills mansion, from the beaches of Santa Monica to a Photomat booth in Albuquerque, The Trip captures Warhol’s interactions with Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Marcel Duchamp, Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra. Along the way he also met rednecks, beach bums, underground filmmakers, artists, poets, socialites, and newly minted hippies, and they each left an indelible mark on his psyche.

The discussion will conclude with a tour of Serial Intent. 

Free and open to all. Copies of The Trip are available for purchase in the Museum Shop.

EXTREME ACTION! EXTREME ART!

Dock those devices and stretch that brain! We’re bending the rules of making art with a week of action packed, multi-sensory challenges for campers big and small. Take the experimental process to a new level with our first annual Splatter Games. Build with a team in Minute-to-Create-It. Hike the galleries with your art survival pack and tell tall art tales in the Garden. On the last day of each session, campers will host their family and friends at an artist's reception!

$75/week, member child; $112/week, non-member child. Parents are welcome but not required to stay.*
