“My creator, Andy Warhol, once said: ‘Art is what you can get away with.’ And that is exactly what has happened. One early, hazy, April morning, just before the daily museum bustle, my brothers and sisters, all ten of us, woke up to an unusually loud commotion. In less than a few minutes, I was bagged, along with my six siblings and taken away unlawfully. I come from the iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans collection, although not the original paintings made famous in 1962. I am of the silkscreen variety, born in 1968 into a large family edition of 250. As an individual piece, I am not so special, in fact, I am not worth much on my own. It is only when presented together, reunited with my siblings, will I be of value and importance.
I am a creation by Andy Warhol and I miss my family at the Springfield Art Museum.”
