Hirshhorn Warhol Exhibit

Not one but two area museums are offering exhibits focused 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," offering works that the famed gay artist created largely on headlines from tabloid news, documenting his ahead-of-the-curve fascination with sensational news. Both exhibits run through Jan. 15, 2012. Hirshhorn Museum, Independence Avenue and 7th Street SW. Call 202-633-1000 or visit hirshhorn.si.edu. National Gallery of Art, East Building, Constitution Avenue and 3rd Street NW. Call 202-737-4215 or visit nga.gov.
