New Warhol Paintings Now on Display at Crystal Bridges

BENTONVILLE, AR -- A big gift this holiday season means more to see at Crystal Bridges! The Museum of American Art is now the proud owner of two additional paintings by pop artist Andy Warhol. They will be on display starting Thursday, December 26.

One of them is a very rare painting given to the museum. It's an early Warhol work, depicting a man and woman sleeping, that was donated by a private owner in Arkansas who once went to school with Warhol.

Another piece is a 1962 "Coca-Cola [3]" painting bought at auction.

Crystal Bridges now has four Andy Warhol paintings on display.

"This is a rare opportunity to come see these four different time periods within Andy Warhol's career and get a little bit of a focused exhibition here on Andy Warhol's different styles," says Diane Carroll, a spokesperson for the museum.

As always, admission to the museum's permanent collection is free of charge! As a bonus, Coca-Cola is offering a freebie as well. In honor of the newly-acquired Warhol painting, the company is giving free glass bottles of Coke to all Crystal Bridges visitors. To get yours, just visit the museum lobby!

The museum also acquired another Warhol piece, but it's not yet ready for display. It's a book of 21 dye diffusion transfer prints, or Polaroids, made in 1971, gifted to Crystal Bridges by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
