Andy Warhol at the Union Station

Went to see Andy Warhol at the Union Station in Kansas City yesterday. I've been to a Warhol exhibition in Moscow last year and was prepared to see similar works in this one. Marilyn Monroe, Campbell cans and other textbook works. The soup cans and one portrait of Marilyn were there, but I was pleasantly surprised to see other works that are little bit less "pop" in a sense that you don't always see them every time someone says "Warhol". It's a pretty small exhibition with a good selection of prints. The works featured are the Flowers, Endangered Species, Ten Jews of the Twentieth Century, Muhammad Ali, still lives, portraits of Mickey Mouse and Uncle Sam, as well as many others. You can see the exhibit page here.
