On The Avenue

Soda Pop Meets Pop Art

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

What do the Academy Awards, Friends, the White House, and Coca-Cola all have in common? They’re all beloved American institutions that have displayed specialty works by Burton Morris, world-renowned pop artist.


The time to personally visit a Morris piece is now, as he is presenting his 100 Coca-Cola Bottle Art Installation at Soho Contemporary Art Gallery to celebrate 100 years of the soft drink’s iconic bottle.


The instillation consists of 100 Coca-Cola bottle canvas paintings that took more than four months of work, each one bearing Morris’ signature vivid colors and thick black outlines. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s 100 Campbell Soup Box paintings, Morris is a pop artist for our modern times, and the chance to check out this public instillation is not to be missed.
