Andy Warhol and the Can that Sold the World

by Gary Indiana

In the summer of 1962, Andy Warhol unveiled 32 Soup Cans in his first solo exhibition at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles-and sent the art world reeling. The responses ran from incredulity to outrage; the poet Taylor Mead described the exhibition as "a brilliant slap in the face to America." The exhibition put Warhol on the map-and transformed American culture forever. Almost single-handedly, Warhol collapsed the centuries-old distinction between "high" and "low" culture, and created a new and radically modern aesthetic.In Andy Warhol and the Can that Sold the World, the dazzlingly versatile critic Gary Indiana tells the story of the genesis and impact of this iconic work of art. With energy, wit, and tremendous perspicacity, Indiana recovers the exhilaration and controversy of the Pop Art Revolution and the brilliant, tormented, and profoundly narcissistic figure at its vanguard.

The Andy Warhol Diaries

by Andy Warhol Pat Hackett

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the bestselling classic is introduced to a new generation-with an added preface by Warhol's diarist and long-time friend, Pat Hackett, contemplating Warhol's lasting cultural impact. This international literary sensation turns the spotlight on one of the most influential and controversial figures in American culture. Filled with shocking observations about the lives, loves, and careers of the rich, famous, and fabulous, Warhol's journal is endlessly fun and fascinating. Spanning the mid-1970s until just a few days before his death in 1987, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES is a compendium of the more than twenty thousand pages of the artist's diary that he dictated daily to Pat Hackett. In it, Warhol gives us the ultimate backstage pass to practically everything that went on in the world-both high and low. He hangs out with "everybody": Jackie O ("thinks she's so grand she doesn't even owe it to the public to have another great marriage to somebody big"), Yoko Ono ("We dialed F-U-C-K-Y-O-U and L-O-V-E-Y-O-U to see what happened, we had so much fun"), and "Princess Marina of, I guess, Greece," along with art-world rock stars Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, and Keith Haring. Warhol had something to say about everyone who crossed his path, whether it was Lou Reed or Liberace, Patti Smith or Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra or Michael Jackson. A true cultural artifact, THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES amounts to a portrait of an artist-and an era-unlike any other.

Andy Warhol: Pop Art Painter

by Susan Goldman Rubin

Following award-winning artist biographies "Degas and the Dance," "Toulouse-Lautrec," and "Cezanne," an exciting new book from Abrams Books for Young Readers looks at Andy Warhol. A leader of the American art movement known as Pop, short for "popular culture," Warhol changed the way we think of art. Assisted by photographs taken of Warhol throughout his life, and examples of his early drawings and best-known works, Susan Goldman Rubin traces his rise from poverty to wealth, and from obscurity to fame.

Andy Warhol: Prince of Pop

by Jan Greenberg Sandra Jordan

"IN THE FUTURE EVERYBODY will be world famous for 15 minutes. " The Campbell's Soup Cans. The Marilyns. The Electric Chairs. The Flowers. The work created by Andy Warhol elevated everyday images to art, ensuring Warhol a fame that has far outlasted the 15 minutes he predicted for everyone else. His very name is synonymous with the 1960s American art movement known as Pop. But Warhol's oeuvre was the sum of many parts. He not only produced iconic art that blended high and popular culture; he also made controversial films, starring his entourage of the beautiful and outrageous; he launchedInterview, a slick magazine that continues to sell today; and he reveled in leading the vanguard of New York's hipster lifestyle. The Factory, Warhol's studio and den of social happenings, was the place to be. Who would have predicted that this eccentric boy, the Pittsburgh-bred son of Eastern European immigrants, would catapult himself into media superstardom? Warhol's rise, from poverty to wealth, from obscurity to status as a Pop icon, is an absorbing tale--one in which the American dream of fame and fortune is played out in all of its success and its excess. No artist of the late 20th century took the pulse of his time--and ours--better than Andy Warhol. Praise forVincent van Gogh: Portrait of an Artist: "This outstanding, well-researched biography is fascinating reading. "--School Library Journal, Starred "Readers will see not just the man but also the paintings anew. "--The Bulletin, Starred "An exceptional biography that reveals the humanity behind the myth. "--Booklist, Starred A Robert F. Sibert Honor Book An ALA Notable Book

Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic

by Suzanne Rhodes

In 1972, two pilots--one a federal career engineer, the other the pastor of a prominent church in Washington, D.C.--discovered a common passion for flying airplanes and serving people. One day over lunch, the men conceived a flight plan, one that would undergo many changes before becoming Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic, as it is known today. Ed Boyer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Dr. Louis Evans, pastor of the National Presbyterian Church, discussed how to pool their interests and qualifications. From its beginnings as a charitable shuttle service for religious leaders and dignitaries, to full-scale charitable air ambulance operations, to Angel Flights for ambulatory patients, the initial vision has grown into a network of over 1,500 volunteer pilots in the Mid-Atlantic region who use their private planes to fly people in need to specialized treatment. Angel Flight coordinates missions of mercy from its offices in Virginia Beach, helping patients to find "the shortest distance between home and hope."

Animals in Art

by Jessica Rawson

Animals have been the subject of art from the time that man started to draw, engrave and carve. They have been and are almost as important to men as man himself. In many societies and at many periods animals have been the most prominent subject of art. But this art shows much more varied attitudes to animals than those we today at first expect. In modern urbanised society we look on most animals from a distance. This distance is not bridged by the great extent of our modern scientific knowledge.

Ann Arbor in the 19th Century: A Photographic History

by Grace Shackman

Ann Arbor has never been a typical college town, typical industrial town, or typical agricultural center. The city was founded in 1824 by John Allen and Elisha Rumsey. Settlers from the Eastern U.S. of British origin were soon followed by Germans, who brought with them many practical skills. With the opening of the University of Michigan campus in 1841, still more people came from across the country to teach and learn. Ann Arbor in the 19th Century: A Photographic History, details the growth of the city, when residents built houses and businesses, organized a government, and established churches, schools, a university, and newspapers, in over 190 photographs. Early residents would recognize the photograph of Okemos, nephew of Pontiac, Chief of the Ottawa, who made regular visits to Ann Arbor, before the Native Americans were banished to Kansas by the federal government. Another fascinating photo shows Henry Otto's Band, whose family was responsible for much of the music at official events. However, much of 19th century Ann Arbor would still be recognizable to today's residents.

Anna Maria Island

by Bonner Joy

Anna Maria Island was once inhabited by Native Americans, but as the beauty became known to its first homesteader, George L. Bean, the island's destiny was to be a beacon to paradise. In spite of mangrove forests and throngs of mosquitoes, people came by boat to enjoy the white sand beaches and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, with their cool onshore breezes and blazing sunsets. The Islander newspaper of the 1950s heralded, "Where life is good and the fishing is great." Anglers came from afar to test their skills against tarpon, the world's greatest game fish, and to hunt goliath grouper in the depths of Tampa Bay. Two modern bridges connected the island to the mainland in 1957, and with that the seven-mile-long island was on its way to becoming the jewel of Manatee County.
