Celebrating Warhol Live and College Night

The biannual College Night features a variety of projects by Bay Area university and college students and community-based art centers, drawing inspiration from and paying tribute to Andy Warhol’s artwork and techniques.  Enjoy Studio 54-inspired dance tunes by DJ Felix and DJ Lamont and a special guest performance by Alexis Miranda, owner of Divas nightclub in San Francisco.  This event features an Andy Warhol look-alike contest.  Dress “Factory” or as your favorite Studio 54 celebrity. Plus, hand-on art making for everyone led by “art diva” Kim Erickson.  Warholize your photos!  Bring in a 5×7 or smaller photo of your own, or use one of the diva’s pictures.

Final Friday Night Celebrating Warhol Live

A recreation of Andy Warhol’s Factory is installed for one night only at the de Young.  The installation includes iconic Factory furniture, screenings by Bay Area filmmakers, filmmaking in progress, a special performance by the Mutants, plus the Psycho-delic sounds of DJ Neel N. Kizmiaz.  Warholmania strikes again with father-and-son duo
Rene and Rio Yañez and the now famous “Andys.”

Mutants are an important band in the history of San Francisco punk and new wave music, known for their theatrical performances that often include elaborate props, projections, and comical antics. Hand-on art making for everyone led by “art diva” Kim Erickson.  Unleash your inner Studio 54 personality and create a design inspired by Pop art textiles of the 1970s.
