LIKE-NESS: Andy Warhol Prints and Photos from the Permanent Collection
Dates: 2/20 – 3/20
Opening Reception – Thursday, February 20th, 4-7 PM
Drawn from the permanent collection at Rhode Island College, LIKE-NESS celebrates the unique personalities found in Warhol’s portrait Polaroids, the candid snapshots of his street photographs, and the layered colors and meanings in his silkscreen prints. These works, made in the 1970s and 1980s, contribute to an ever-broadening understanding of Warhol’s late career. Furthering our mission as an educational art gallery, this exhibition is also curated in conjunction with the Fall 2019 Art History seminar Warhol By Design, which provided RIC students with the opportunity to conduct scholarly research about Warhol’s life, career, and legacy and to present those findings to the public.
