Support the Whitney Museum of American Art by snagging these melamine Banana Split Bowls ($15) complete with two sundae spoons. The kitschy party bowls are based on the Andy Warhol's screen print Banana circa 1966, and his fascination with making commodity objects into cultural icons is epitomized in this form-meets-function piece. If not used for sundaes, they would make great small fruit bowls . . . Need more banana? Check it out Banana in poster form.
Andy Warhol (1923 - 1987) is famed for inventing the central philosophy behind his innovative Pop Art, transforming iconic American products like the the Campbell's Soup can into fine art. We remember him best for linking beauty and mass culture in his series featuring glamor goddess Marilyn Monroe. His influence is immense and far reaching, and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh is devoted completely to preserving the legacy of his vision, in case you're curious.
