7 – With selections from the Freedman Family Collection and the BYU Museum of Art, “Think Flat: The Art of Andy Warhol and Takashi Murakami” will open to the public.

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has perpetuated this tradition of rejecting society’s dictates of high or low in consumerism, art and culture in order to disempower hierarchies. The exhibition will run until Feb. 18, 2013. Admission is free. For more information, visit moa.byu.edu or call (801) 422-ARTS.
