Pop Art for everyone is the motto of this years summer exhibition at the Antalya Culture & Arts Center. Until the 25th of September the exhibition area is offering a brief look into the Work and Art of Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol, the Pop Figure of Pop Art. The father and inventor of many world-known and -loved Art Pieces, like the world-famous Marilyn Monroe or Campbell’s Cans.
Already from the outside the Antalya Culture & Arts Center near the Saat Kulesi Clock Tower in Antalya is outstanding from the other buildings. It’s colorful, unique and a piece of art itself, as you can see below. By entering the building you have to pass a security control, but don’t worry, and you can now head over to the Café, the souvenir shop or to the ticket office. The admission for the Andy Warhol exhibition in Antalya costs 15 TL (turkish lira), which is about 5 Euro.
If you don’t have any problems to walk stairs, or aren’t traveling with a baby and a stroller, I recommend to take the elevator to the highest 5th floor and walk down one Floor after another. Otherwise you can for sure use the elevator from one exhibition area/floor to the other one! On the 5th floor there is a panoramic terrace, the Andy Warhol “Pop Art for everyone” Exhibition can be viewed on floors 2, 3 and 4. The Antalya Culture & Arts Center isn’t big, but I could get a good insight into the Life of Andy Warhol. Did you know that he was born as Andy Warhola in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and that his parents immigrated from today’s Slovakia. Or that he first worked as an illustrator for Vogue and numerous other magazines in New York, before founding his own one Interview? As taking photos or video is not allowed I only have photos of the elevators.
Andy Warhol “Pop Art for everyone” is open until the 25th September 2016 and I can highly recommend a visit.
