Rev your engines to go see “Warhol and Cars: American Icons”—on display from June 24-September 16th at the Birmingham Musuem of Art.

The early line drawings were created when Warhol was still in college at the School of Fine Arts at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh. The exhibit follows the devlopment of Warhol’s fascination with mass market interest, particulary the mid-century rise in automobile production and sales. (Did you know that between 1945 and 1955, the American car population doubled from 26 to 52 million?) The later pieces embody the colorful silk screened repititous style for which he is so well-known.
