"Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal" was held from February 1, 2014 (Saturday) to March 6, 2014 (Tuesday, Substitute Holiday). It was enjoyable to find how attractive pop art is by see his masterpieces including Campbell Soup. In particular, the self-portrait of Andy Warhol was overwhelming. It was impressive to see a wide variety of art works from super stars such as Elvis Presley to endangered animals such as african elephants. It was unique to create different images by changing colors, although the composition of pictures that Marilyn Monroe was drawn is the same. It was interesting to watch television commercial about video tape of TDK.

In case of "Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal,"There was a combo ticket with Roppongi Hills Tokyo City View. It is desirable to check the schedule, considering that it is necessary to go to both places without going out of these places.
