Norton Museum features artist Andy Warhol

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The newest exhibit is being showcased at the Norton Museum of Art.  It's called, "To Jane, Love Andy: Warhol's First Superstar." 

Artist Andy Warhol may have showcased stars like Marilyn Monroe, but he also promoted people in his artwork whom he spent time with socially, calling them "superstars."  Warhol is known to have famously said, "In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." 

As Warhol's fame has continued for decades, his "superstars" were cemented in his works.  Among them, Jane Holzer, Warhol's first and most glamorous superstar.

Jane Holzer is a native of Palm Beach.  She had a deep friendship with Warhol through his lifetime. 

The Norton exhibit explores Holzer as an internationally-known model, but also as a confidante and friend to Warhol.  Some of Holzer's fashions are included in the exhibit, along with several photographs.  Warhol's painting, sculpture, prints and films with "Baby Jane" are also featured in the exhibit. 

The exhibit is open through May 25, 2014.  For more details, visit www.norton.org
