BUGABOO LAUNCHES SO MANY STARS – ANDY WARHOL APP FOR KIDS

BUGABOO LAUNCHES SO MANY STARS – ANDY WARHOL APP FOR KIDS

To celebrate the launch of the fall 2013 collection of their multi-year collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, design brand Bugaboo bundles unique never published hand drawn illustrations of Warhol’s “SO” series into a fun app. The So Many Stars – Andy Warhol app allows children to discover the legendary pop artist’s world in a playful way. 

The new app is an interactive adaptation of Andy Warhol’s So Many Stars board book for children, which is gifted with the Andy Warhol + Bugaboo So Many Stars collection at select retailers worldwide. The app explores Warhol’s whimsical drawings from the 1950’s illustrating the concept of “So” and invites children to uncover what happens inside of the “So” animations.  That discovery starts when touching objects on the different pages, like making dogs grow, eating spaghetti and letting fish jump out of the water.  It’s purely about discovering Andy Warhol’s world in a cheerful graphical way. 

The app will be available on the App Store for 2.99 CAD or on bugaboo.com. Revenue generated by the sale of the app will contribute generously to The Andy Warhol Foundation’s endowment from which it distributes grants in support of contemporary art.

The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
As the preeminent American artist of the 20th Century, Andy Warhol challenged the world to see art differently. Since its founding in 1987 in accordance with Andy Warhol’s will, The Andy Warhol Foundation has established itself as among the leading funders of contemporary art in the United States having distributed nearly $250,000,000 in cash grants supporting the creation, presentation and documentation of contemporary visual arts, particularly work that is experimental, under-recognized or challenging in nature. The foundation’s on-going efforts to protect and enhance its founder’s creative legacy ensure that Warhol’s inventive, open-minded spirit will have a profound impact on the visual arts for generations to come. Proceeds the foundation receives from licensing projects contribute to the Foundation’s endowment from which it distributes grants. For more information please visit www.warholfoundation.org.
