Exploring TC540: Artwork

Time Capsules is one serial artwork consisting of many boxes, each consisting of many items, although sometimes a TC contains an individual piece of art that stands on its own. We have found photographs that Andy used as source material and Polaroids that he used to create his iconic portraits. But we don’t often find original drawings or paintings, which makes this discovery—a blotted line drawing of flowers, hand colored—pretty exciting. You’ll also see some images and text from the book Love Is a Pink Cake. These are copies, but we do have the original drawings in the museum collection.
