Andy Warhol. You know: wispy white hair, the Factory, the Campbell's Soup guy. But there's so much more to this man-the paintings, the famous screen tests, the movies and the underground art world that solidified his iconic image as the father of Pop art. His images were soon burned into the world's consciousness: Mao, Marilyn, Jackie and John, mushroom clouds, civil-rights protests-and even some bananas and knives. Warhol took moments from popular culture and elevated and doused them with loud, shrieking color, rapidly churning them out in a silk-screening frenzy, and then hurriedly nailing them to museum walls. Mundane, everyday objects would never be the same once this guy got ahold of 'em. Flashy. But let's take it down a few notches. Grand Central Art Center presents "Original Photography by Andy Warhol," and it's exactly what it sounds like. It's a chance to gaze into the photographic mind's eye of Warhol and be granted a revealing look into the souls of the subjects he captured. Camera flashy.
