In 1962, Andy Warhol held his first solo show, debuting one of the most iconic pieces of modern art: 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans. The painting included every then-current Campbell’s soup variety, from tomato to split pea.
Now, Campbell’s is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s famous work with four limited-edition cans of condensed tomato soup. Each label features vibrant Warhol-like color combinations similar to the artist’s iconic serial celebrity silkscreens. Produced under license from The Andy Warhol Foundation, the 1.2 million cans are now available at most U.S. Target stores for $0.75 per 10.75-ounce can, while supplies last.
Fans can also transform their own faces into Warhol-inspired works of art on Campbell’s Condensed Facebook page, where a lucky few will get their photos featured for their own “15 minutes of fame.”
Campbell’s was a symbol of comfort for my sister and me when we were growing up. We would turn to canned soup for dinner on cold nights when Mom and Dad were working late. Suffice it to say, I’m a soup-art fan—how about you?
