What to Wear: MOCA Andy Warhol Exhibition

by Kait Kucy · 1 comment

Calgary art lovers have the chance to see some of the incredible Andy Warhol’s paintings in person at the upcoming exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Andy Warhol: The Athlete Series January 12 - 30. The exhibition presents the full suite of 10 Warhol paintings, the Athlete Series featuring portraits of: Muhammed Ali, O.J. Simpson, Pele, Jack Nicklaus, Dorothy Hamill, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chris Evert, Tom Seaver, Willie Shoemaker, and Rod Gilbert.

It is not too often that an opportunity to view such famous artworks comes around in Calgary, so you’ll want to be looking sharp when you show up for the opening reception (RSVP for tickets here).

Andy Warhol was all about the details so I pulled together some great pieces that would (hopefully) be Factory Party approved! From bold and graphic polkadot tights to an iconic James Dean t-shirt, just think like a pop artist and stick with statement-making details.

for the girls:

Black Leopard Canvas Flats, $44.95, Gap

Feed 10 Pouch, $25, Jack & Elliot

Polkadot Tights, $27.99, Little Burgundy

for the guys:

Wolin Bordeaux Loafers, $50, Aldo Shoes

Backgammon Pocket Square, $19.50, Club Monaco

James Dean T-Shirt, $17.95, H&M

Museum of Contemporary Art
104 - 800 - Macleod Trail SE
(Main floor, Calgary Municipal Building)
