Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Who is Andy Warhol?
- Hooray for Simon and Garfunkel!

A: Dear Hooray,
Ooh, I know! I know! He's an American contemporary artist.
"Over the course of his career, Andy Warhol transformed contemporary art. Employing mass-production techniques to create works, Warhol challenged preconceived notions about the nature of art and erased traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture.
Located in Pittsburgh, PA, the Andy Warhol Museum's permanent collection is comprised of more than 4,000 works of art by Warhol including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, film, videotapes, and an extensive archives that consists of ephemera, records, source material for works of art, and other documents of the artist's life. Together, the art and archives make The Andy Warhol Museum the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world."
