With an artistic legacy built around the Campbell's model of instant recognition, mass production and self-conscious kitsch, isn't a roomful of Andy Warhols just life imitating art? If you've ever longed for a taste of Factory superstar chic, then put on your silver wig, black turtleneck and dark glasses, because tonight is your chance to make the Pope of Pop Art proud.
NightLite: The Andy Warhol Soap Factory Costume Party, which starts at the fashionably late hour of 10 p.m. at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, is a multimedia soiree featuring three live bands, artists creating Warhol-inspired pop art, an '80s fashion show and Factory-style film installations.
According to Keleigh Asbury, media contact for BMoCA, "Our current climate-change exhibit, Weather Report, got a large grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation, so we thought it would be fun to incorporate both types of art and throw a cool party in Boulder. We want people to dress up as anyone who hung out at the Factory artists, musicians, models and at the end of the night, we'll vote on the best dressed and award a grand prize."
BMoCA is at 1750 13th Street in Boulder; NightLite tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. For more information, visit www.bmoca.org or call 303-443-2122.
