"A series of limited edition Andy Warhol-inspired Campbell's Soup cans will be available to commemorate the 51st anniversary of Warhol's 32 iconic Campbell's canvasses."
"Since their unveiling back in 1962, the names Andy Warhol and Campbell’s have been synonymous with one another. To celebrate our long history together we are launching this limited edition range of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato soup, with 4 different labeled cans, derived from the original Warhol artwork."

I'll be honest with you, I fell head first into the marketing campaign, and purchased four cans representing each label design (oh the shame). I did however, wait until the cans were reduced to $1!
Now void of their ingredients after trying various recipes with condensed tomato soup as a base, I have been thinking of ways to reuse and exhibit my cool cans.
I remembered a photograph I'd taken in a small village in the Indian Himalaya region some 8 years ago, where locals used empty food cans as plant pots, more out of necessity than to look good:

I purchased succulent plants for $1 each from a lovely man at the Sunday Cheltenham Rotary Market, re-potting each one in an Andy Warhol can. Done.
After posting the photograph on facebook, a few comments suggest there are not too many Andy Warhol tribute cans left on the supermarket shelves, so if you do want to have a go at this wee project too, best get to your nearest Australian Woolworths store before they sell out.
