"Silver Clouds" by Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol's "Silver Clouds," presented by Ferris State University Art Gallery and Artworks of Big Rapids, is an interactive exhibit that combines light, air, movement and audience participation to create a playful and engaging environment.

The exhibit invites the audience to become one with the art.  The audience is encouraged to walk through, sit and observe, lie on the floor and let the art float through space above as you reflect and take respite from the stress of daily life.  There will be floating "clouds" meant to represent space, time, the evening sky and all that is joyful, playful and peaceful.

Warhol is one of the most notable and controversial 20th century artists.  He is best known for his images of consumer culture icons such as Campbell's soup cans and pop icons including Marilyn Monroe.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event.  The exhibit will be displayed from Saturday, Feb. 1 through Friday, Feb. 28 at Artworks.  It can be viewed Tuesday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Parental supervision is required for children younger than 13.
