The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) will showcase the art of Andy Warhol this coming February. “Warhol Out West” is scheduled to debut on Feb. 8 and will showcase 59 works of the artist.

Organized in partnership with The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the exhibition will focus on Warhol’s depiction of all things Western, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, screen prints and wallpaper. Exhibits will include Warhol’s 1960s Pop paintings of celebrities and consumer products; the 1980s advertisement series; the beloved “Double Elvis” painting; and his rarely seen “Cowboys and Indians” series.

“Our exhibit at Bellagio will be the only comprehensive Andy Warhol collection in the United States outside of his namesake museum in Pittsburgh and we recognize what a tremendous honor this is for our city,” said Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of BGFA. “Everywhere you look in Las Vegas, you can see the impact of Warhol’s creative genius and it is remarkable how his life and art continues to transcend generations."

“Warhol Out West” will be on view through Oct. 27, 2013. Tickets are $16 for general admission; $13 for Nevada residents and seniors 65 and older; and $11 for students, teachers and military with valid ID. Children age 12 and under are free. Audio tours are included in the price of admission and complimentary docent tours are available daily at 2 p.m.
