Be a Superstar

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.
Fri., Nov. 30, 10 p.m.-1 a.m., 2007
