In other Warhol news, Campbell’s will be launching a limited edition of its Tomato Soup cans immortalized by the artist in the 1960s. The cans will pay tribute to Warhol’s ’32 Campbell’s Soup Cans’ that catapulted pop art into the public eye.
The cans will become available starting September 9, although only on grocery shelves in the UK (any Brits out there feeling gift-y?). The project is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation, who recently paid tribute to the artist on his birthday last month with a live stream from his grave.
If you still can’t get enough Warhol (who can!?) – head over to http://warhol.perrier.com/, where a month-long contest supported by Perrier and the Andy Warhol Foundation is giving fans the chance to take home a real piece of art from the artist.
