What a way to end this week with art, fashion and Studio 54!
The Mint Museum is certainly going to WOW with this exhibit.
7 March to 14 June 2015 at The Mint Museum
In the worlds of fashion and art during the second half of the twentieth century, few figures are as iconic as Roy Halston Frowick and Andy Warhol. Halston and Warhol: Silver and Suede is a captivating exhibition that, for the first time, unites the work of these two legendary men, offering a unique perspective on the intersections between their lives and creative practice. Organized by The Andy Warhol Museum in collaboration with Lesley Frowick (the niece of Halston), Halston and Warhol integrates approximately 40 of Halston’s creations, including the iconic pillbox hat designed for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and his signature Ultrasuede shirtdress, with a broad selection of paintings, photographs, and videos by Warhol. It also features a variety of archival material and ephemera that further link the two men both creatively and socially and explore their shared influences and interests.
