Exhibition Label, 40 Years / 40 Artists, January 22–March 8, 2015:
In 2008, 150 Polaroids and black and white silver gelatin prints were donated to the UMCA by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Andy Warhol Foundation, the Program’s goal was to provide greater access to Warhol’s creative process and to enable a wide range of people to view this important yet relatively unknown body of Warhol’s photography.
In 2014, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts made an additional major gift to the UMCA of six original silkscreen prints. Created between the late 1970s and mid-1980s, these never-before-exhibited prints depict a range of subjects, from fashionable portraits to popular culture, including such iconic images as Warhol’s portrait of friend and artist Joseph Beuys and a representation of Lakota chief Sitting Bull. These works are pristine and have never been framed or previously exhibited. They were in the artist’s possession at the time of his death. - Loretta Yarlow
