In 1974, Andy Warhol arrived in Minneapolis with his reported entourage and 3 empty luggage for a screening of his film L’Amore, a book signing and a gallery opening. Almost 40 years later, Christie’s took the Warhol show on the road to reune Andy with Minneapolis at Aria.

For fans of the Sunset series, you have the views from the Marquette Inn at the IDS Center to thank for inspiring Warhol to create a series to hang in the rooms.
