Feb 7 – Apr 12 Piedmont
Gallery Goes Pop: WARHOL
Methodist University David McCune International Art Gallery, Fayetteville
Andy Warhol changed our attitudes toward art and artists in unprecedented and indelible ways. During the 1950s, when Warhol was one of the most celebrated graphic designers in New York City, artists were not widely considered as being engaged in a serious profession. In the course of his 40-year career, which took him from commercial artist to radical innovator, filmmaker to portrait painter, shy observer to international celebrity, Warhol played a major role in establishing artists as leading figures in American life. The opening reception will be held on February 7, 2019, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The exhibit will then remain on display through April 12, 2019.
