DOWNLOAD THE ANDY WARHOL APP FOR KIDS FOR FREE!

To celebrate the launch of the autumn 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 lets children acquaint themselves with the legendary pop artist’s world in a playful way.

The new app explores Warhol’s whimsical drawings from the 1950’s illustrating the concept of “So” and invites children to discover 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. There’s no right or wrong, it’s purely about discovering Andy Warhol’s world in a cheerful graphical way.

And a special Christmas gift from Bugaboo, the app will be FREE for one week, from 22nd to 29th December, and is available on the App Store or on bugaboo.com. The app is available at all other times for £1.99 and revenue generated by all sales 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
