High Museum of Art Hosts Canned Food Drive Benefitting Atlanta Community Food Bank

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s paintings of 32 cans of Campbell’s Soup featured in the current Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters exhibition, the High Museum of Art has partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Campbell Soup Company to host a canned food drive.

From Friday, January 27, through Sunday, January 29, visitors to the Museum are encouraged to bring canned food donations. For every one food item donated, visitors will receive $1 off of Museum admission, up to $10 off. The discount may also be applied to Museum membership.

In support of the initiative, Campbell Soup Company has donated 3,024 cans of soup, and staff members from the Atlanta Community Food Bank will be at the Museum to accept donations.

In addition, Aaron Albrecht, designer at The Beck Group, will create a sculpture using the donated Campbell’s Soup cans. The sculpture will be on display in the Museum’s Margaretta Taylor Lobby.
