Andy Warhol's "Empire" in instagram

Last night was pretty magical for art lovers and Warhol fans such as myself. The Art Institute of Chicago projected Andy Warhol's 8-hour film Empire from the Bluhm Family Terrace across the park onto the Aon Center. It took nearly forty-five minutes before anything was really visible, and even so, the image was subtle. Had I not known what to look for, I might have missed it. Though it was cold out on the Terrace, there was something so special about seeing the work of Warhol projected onto our beautiful skyline. I'm sure he would have loved it. empire2 empire3 empire1
