Warhol Headlines

Not one but two local museums are offering exhibits focusing on the work of Andy Warhol. The Hirshhorn presents Andy Warhol: Shadows 1978, comprising 102 silkscreened and hand-painted canvases featuring distorted photographs of shadows generated in the famed PopArt artist's studio. Meanwhile, the National Gallery of Art presents Warhol: Headlines, featuring works that the famed gay artist created largely on headlines from tabloid reports, documenting his ahead-of-the-curve fascination with sensational news. Both exhibits are now open and run through Jan. 15, 2012. Hirshhorn Museum, Independence Avenue and 7th Street SW. Call 202-633-1000 or visit hirshhorn.si.edu.
