Plains Art Museum in Fargo, North Dakota recently created a batch of buttons to go along with the exhibit Andy Warhol: Creating Myth and Icon. The set of six 1.25-inch buttons (along with another 2-inch square with a similar design) feature bold letters spelling out Warhol’s name.
German artist Joseph Beuys’ theory of social sculpture, the idea that all people are artists and each action creates the larger work of art of society, influenced the Warhol button designs, which will be handed out to all exhibit visitors. In addition to a collection of prints from Warhol’s Myths and Cowboys and Indians series, the show will feature an interactive recreation of the artist’s famed “The Factory” studio as well as other explorations of Warhol’s iconic work.
The Warhol exhibition runs through May 19. Check out more about it and Plains Art Museum here.
