NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The exhibition "Andy Warhol: Art Is Anything You Can Get Away With," showing in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House, will close with an open house from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 25.

The exhibition features a small slice of the renowned artist's enormous oeuvre, in particular, his "Silver Clouds" - helium-filled silver clouds that drift in the air. The exhibition also includes three of his large screen prints and several of his Polaroid photos.

The open house coincides with Stephen F. Austin State University's next Showcase Saturday and Nacogdoches Main Street's Shop & Stroll, also on March 25. Showcase Saturdays bring hundreds of prospective SFA students and their parents to Nacogdoches to tour the campus, meet faculty and staff and attend campus and community events. Shop & Stroll boasts special savings, prizes and more at downtown shops and businesses.

The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House is SFA's historic downtown art gallery.

"We want to encourage all prospective students, but especially prospective art students, and their parents to come see our facility," said John Handley, director of SFA galleries.

The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.
