UCSB Arts & Lectures presents the Santa Barbara premiere of Warhol’s World in Song: Musical Snapshots from the 1960s, a concert at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB on Wednesday, May 8 at 8 p.m. Please note that seating is limited.

In celebration of a gift of more than 100 photographs by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, a UCSB student intern has organized Fame and the Mundane: Andy Warhol’s Photography, an exhibition of selected Polaroids and prints by the famed artist, at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UCSB. Coinciding with the show, pianist and UCSB alumna Victoria Kirsch and sopranos Suzan Hanson and Shana Blake Hill will perform an eclectic evening of music inspired by the iconic pop artist.

Touching on themes from Warhol’s life and artistic sensibilities – from the longing for glamour and fame to urban living – the concerts feature arias and duets from the American songbook, interspersed with often humorous excerpts from Warhol’s diary entries. Much of the music is from the heyday of Warhol’s output, with selections by Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Lori Laitman and others.

Tickets to Warhol’s World in Song are $35 for the general public and $10 for UCSB students with a current student ID.
