I Like Soup

May 26 to August 19, 2012

I just paint things I always thought were beautiful, things you use every day and never think about. I'm working on soups, and I've been doing some paintings of money. I just do it because I like it.
- Andy Warhol, Time Magazine, May 11, 1962

As MOCA and the Hampton Roads community celebrates the Andy Warhol: Portraits exhibition, we wanted to take a moment to explore Warhol’s idea of a tin soup can and the many ways in which popular culture influences artists today. A plain, unused tin can was given to a selection of local, national and internationally recognized contemporary artists. They were asked to reinterpret the can and use it in the creation of their own art.

Each original can is for sale on MOCA’s website (coming soon). The proceeds from the sales will help benefit MOCA’s educational programs and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. With your help we can provide nourishment for the heads, hearts and stomachs of the people in our community.
