Along with his celebrity portraits and Campbell Soup cans, Andy Warhol’s album covers have their own place in the pop-art pantheon. Detroit’s Cranbrook Art Museum is showing off what it says is the most comprehensive exhibition of authenticated Warhol record covers to date — including a 1955 Count Basie album, which features Warhol’s first celebrity portrait and three recently discovered albums that never before have been shown in such a setting. Warhol On Vinyl: The Record Covers, 1949-1987+ runs through March 15.
