Spring Into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends

Sat. June 10
Bruce Museum
Opening Reception

This exhibition takes an unusual approach to this most famous of Pop artists. Warhol's interest in the natural, the real, and the intimate is shown in this exhibit built around three items in the Bruce's collection, including Flowers (Hand-Colored), 1974, a suite of ten silkscreens prints depicting floral still-lives, given to the Bruce by Peter Brant. These are augmented by significant loans to offer an expanded view of Warhol’s aesthetic universe, including an important four-part painted portrait, never before exhibited in public, of Sachiko Goodman, along with the scores of polaroid studies that the artist made in preparation for the commission.  (More)
