The Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy will have its Grand Opening ceremonies Sunday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. The Johnson Center’s inaugural main exhibit is a collection of 35 original Andy Warhol prints. It is the first-ever Andy Warhol exhibit to visit Alabama and one of the few to visit the South in the last five years. The exhibition is expected to draw a minimum of 900 to 1,200 visitors per month to the Johnson Center. Featured in the $2 million exhibition are a selection of Warhol’s noted works from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s including his images of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne, details of Renaissance paintings, and his Campbell soup can prints. The exhibition will run through Nov. 15 and is free and open to the public.
