“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton
A recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art gave me a glimpse into some of the famous works of Andy Warhol and those inspired by him. Below is a gallery of photos I snuck in from the exhibit (shh, don’t tell!) I admire the way he inspired many by his active role in advertising, celebrity life & questioning traditional viewpoints on sexuality & political discourse. All of these things are seen vividly through his colorful works as well as the famous artists after him that he has influenced.
Coca Cola’s organization RAIN (Replenish Africa Initiative) has tapped Solange, music producer Chris Taylor (of Grizzly Bear) and Twin Shadow to create a song called “Kenya” for this significant campaign.
“Kenya” is now available via download at the RAIN website in exchange for a donation towards the RAIN fund, which will aid to supply water and other sanitation resources to various communities in Africa and other partners of the RAIN campaign.
Over $750 has been raised so far in just a day or so. Help keep it going!
