Andy Warhol’s 80th birthday is this year. How will you celebrate? Share a modest little moment of silence?
I think not!
Instead, let’s throw the biggest, most glamorous party ever! We’ll take all month to prepare. We’ll wear glamorous outfits. We’ll mock and celebrate commercial consumerism. We’ll make icons of our most beautiful friends. We’ll sit on the couch and eat bananas. We’ll make movies and art and listen to Velvets.
As an innovator, lifelong learner, social networker, and consummate scenester, Andy’s life exemplified the tenets of slow learning. I’ll be celebrating Warhol’s birthday all this month by posting ideas for celebrating. With your help, I hope to reach eighty ways by his birthday on August 6th. And then on August 9th we’ll have a GREAT BIG Decadent Party and invite all the most beautiful people. We’ll invite the paparazzi. We’ll invite famous people. We’ll invite you and let you be famous for fifteen minutes. We’ll play with Mylar balloons. We’ll party like it’s 1999.
So save this date: on August 8, 2008 for one magical evening, PLAYTHINK LEARNING STUDIO in Dayton, Ohio, will transform into the SILVER FACTORY. Start planning your outfit now.
More coming soon…
With much gratitude, I acknowledge Whitney Matheson for her original idea. I think Andy would have approved of my copying her.
