15 minutes of fame sustains in Las Vegas as Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) announces the extension of its current exhibition, “Warhol Out West,” through January 2, 2014. 

The only comprehensive Warhol collection in the United States (outside of his namesake museum in Pittsburgh), “Warhol Out West” at BGFA also will add works from the iconic artist’s advertisement series beginning August 1. These works from 1985 include “Mobil,” “Life Savers,” “Blackglama (Judy Garland)” and “Volkswagen.”

“Since its opening in February, ‘Warhol Out West’ has welcomed visitors from around the world and across all generations,” said Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of BGFA. “We’ve had an incredibly positive response and want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to see this unique collection, which spans Warhol’s multifaceted career.”

Organized in partnership with The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, this collection is centered around the pioneering artist’s depiction of all things Western. “Warhol Out West” features 56 of Warhol’s works including paintings, sculptures, photographs, screen prints and wallpaper. Exhibits include Warhol’s 1960s Pop paintings of celebrities and consumer products; the 1980s advertisement series; the beloved “Double Elvis” painting; and his rarely seen “Cowboys and Indians” series.

One of the most influential artists in the visual art movement known as Pop Art, Warhol based his creative depiction of celebrity, advertisements, comic books and brand products within the realm of popular culture.
