The Art of Pop

"Everything is beautiful. Pop is everything." - Andy Warhol The front of the flyer for Culture Haus' annual fundraiser showcases Andy Warhol's famous quote and soup can, and sets the tone for the entire event. (And the event organizers are rocking the details; they sent specially-labeled soup cans and pop rocks candy to help us what's-up-around-town types get into the groove.) The Art of Pop party is coming up on Saturday, February 24; as the social and educational arm of the Denver Art Museum, Culture Haus is responsible for this over the top Andy Warhol theme party. Break out your best disco ensemble -- think New York's Studio 54 nightclub, in all of its late-70's disco glam drama. Mayor Hickenlooper will be on hand as Culture Haus' honorary chairman, along with "Andy Warhol" who will snap everyone's photos as they head in, ensuring each guest their 15 minutes of fame. Pop artists/ lounge act Vanilla Pop will bring their bubble machine and their repertoire of pop tunes from several decades, and the Most Outrageously Dressed guest will win the coveted iPop, an iPod loaded with hand picked pop hits. Snag your $60 tickets to the event ($50 for Culture Haus members) at culturehaus.com by the end of the day today and they'll even enter you to win a $200 Cherry Creek gift card.
