Limited Edition Campbell's Soup Cans Inspired by Andy Warhol's Art

Campbell's has released a series of limited-edition soup cans inspired by Andy Warhol's artwork. This year marks the 50th anniversary of pop artist Andy Warhol's 1962 iconic artwork, "32 Campbell's Soup Cans." The four different color-schemed cans are being sold at Target to commemorate 50 years of the art of soup. The cans feature Warhol's portrait, his autograph and quotes including "In the future, everybody will be world-famous for 15 minutes," "The world fascinates me," "Pop Art is for everyone," "But I always say one's company, two's a crowd, and three's a party." The Warhol cans are being released in conjunction with a new line of Campbell's Soup such as Moroccan Style Chicken with Chickpeas and Creamy Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda.

The original Warhol 1962 piece, "32 Campbell's Soup Cans," is composed of thirty-two 20" x 16" canvases each screen printed in red and white with one flavor of each soup offered at the time the artwork was created.

In Manhattan, Target is located at 517 East 117th Street in East Harlem.
