Recurring Event Virtual Sensory Friendly Workshop: Pop Portraits

A vibrant multi-colored background contains broad strokes of gold, baby blue, pink, and purple. They cross each other and mix almost randomly, creating a chaotic atmosphere. On top of the background are three different black silkscreen prints of Andy Warhol, overlaying each other and contributing to the jumbled effect of the composition. In two of the poses, Andy stares off to the side or down, but in one he stares directly at the viewer.
