NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) — The Nashville Ballet, inspired by Andy Warhol, will perform a short program Friday at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts where a Warhol exhibit is on display.

According to a news release from the ballet, the performance at the center’s atrium will be inspired by Warhol’s aesthetic and artistic style. The performance will mimic Warhol’s art that features everyday objects, and will be set to popular music from the era of Warhol’s pop art and screen prints.

The exhibit is “Warhol Live: Music and Dance in Andy Warhol’s Work.”
