Some standout items on display include the gallery’s latest acquisition: Andy’s 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow along with the original registration which will be the firsttime Andy’s car will be on display to the public; 15 very rare complete portfolios including Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe suite; a rare 1964 Stable Gallery plywood Campbell’s Juice Box previously owned by famed designer Halston; an extremely rare Andy Mouse portfolio by artist Keith Haring in collaboration with Warhol; and several 1981 paintings including Dollar Sign, black and white Ads and Illustrations series paintings, and Guns -which depicts the weapon used by Valerie Solanas who attempted to murder Warhol in the late 1960’s.
There will be a room dedicated to famed Factory photographer Billy Name, who created the aesthetic and design of theSilver Factory. Visitors can also take a selfie on Andy’s blood-orange Factory sofa as well as a wall of 1000 Campbell Soup Cans. Rivlin, a Toronto native who made his name by founding multiple companies in the entertainment & hospitality industries has become an avid collector of Warhol’s work over the years. In 2012, Rivlin saw an opportunity to open Revolver to express his passion for the life and works of Andy Warhol. Revolver Gallery maintains a one-artist program devoted exclusively to promoting and preserving the legacy of Andy Warhol through education and experience. In 2017, Revolver will give back to the community with the launch of it’s sister non-profit company named ArtCauseAmerica.org. Its mission is to provide students, who attend public schools with no art programs, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of creating artwork for free through classes in public libraries.
