University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, Features Works by Andy Warhol
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, will present the exhibit, Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids, on view at the Weatherspoon Art Museum from June 6 through Sept. 19, 2010.
The exhibition features approximately 300 Polaroids and 70 gelatin silver black-and-white prints pooled from the many donated to the Weatherspoon Art Museum, the Nasher Museum of Art, and the Ackland Art Museum in 2008 by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, a division of the Andy Warhol Foundation in celebration of the foundation's 20th anniversary.
The donations were part of a larger gift made to 180 institutions nationwide by the Foundation in recognition of its 20th anniversary. A first-time collaboration between these three North Carolina-based university art museums, Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids features some of the models, actors, sports heroes, and socialites who populated Warhol's world.
The exhibition is co-organized by the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Greensboro; the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; and the Ackland Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The exhibition was previously seen at the Nasher Museum (Nov. 12, 2009 - Feb. 21, 2010). After exhibiting at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, the installation will travel to the Ackland Art Museum (Oct. 2, 2010 - Jan. 2, 2011).
Support for Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids and related programs comes from the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, a division of the Andy Warhol Foundation; Carey Sound; Design Archives; Greensboro Convention and Visitor's Bureau; Lincoln Financial; Natty Greene's Brewing Co.; Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels; Revolve Film & Music Festival; and WUAG 103.1.
