ROBIN TRIMARCHI rtrimarchi@ledger-enquirer.com Andy Warhol's famous silkscreens of Marilyn Monroe are part of the Warhol in Southern Collections exhibition on display through October 13 in the Third Floor Galleries at the Columbus Museum. Classic images of John Wayne, the Marx Brothers, Mickey Mouse and the moon landing can be seen along with early sketches and a series depicting the Old West. A Factory-inspired interactive room that is reminiscent of Andy Warhol's New York studio is open for visitors to learn the silkscreen process that the artist used to create his iconic Pop Art images, and make "Warholed" versions of art pieces from the museum's collection. 07.22.13
