Andy Warhol was a man of many talents, though the world may know him best for his iconic Pop Art works such as his stylized soup cans and images of Marilyn Monroe. This particular web project from the Warhol museum in Pittsburgh affords interested parties a look into his Time Capsule 21. This compelling work is one of over 600 cardboard boxes that he filled over the course of his life. The material here dates from the 1950s to the early 1970s and is "a treasure trove of ephemera, source material and artwork." Visitors can explore over 50 objects from the capsule by clicking on "Selection of Time Capsule 21 Contents" and clicking and zooming in on items. They can also read texts and listen to audio and video selections. The contents here include photobooth photos and source material for Warhol's paintings, such as his early disaster image, "129 Die in Jet." Altogether it presents a fascinating look into the interests and habits of one of the best-known American artists of the 20th century.
