Andy Warhol Opening Reception

An opening reception that is free and open to the public for the exhibition Andy Warhol will take place on Thursday, October 5, from 4-6 p.m. at the David Filderman Gallery.  Susannah Ray, Hofstra Associate Professor of Fine Arts, Design, Art History, will be the featured host and guest speaker. This original exhibition of works by Andy Warhol, a major pop artist and art celebrity of the 20th century, includes a selection of his screenprints and photographs from the Hofstra University Museum Collections. By juxtaposing his photographs with his screenprints, the exhibition contextualizes and reveals his working methods and artistic process. As a participant in the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program since 2008, the Museum received donations of 153 photographs (Polaroids and gelatin silver prints) and nine screenprints from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Inc. The Legacy Program, launched in 2007, donated a curated selection of original Polaroid photographs and gelatin silver prints by Andy Warhol to a select group of educational institutions across the United States.

“The images in Andy Warhol represent an artist whose work transcends the everyday and asks that we pause and question originality, fame, and purpose,” said Museum Director Nancy Richner.

An Exhibition Reception for Andy Warhol will be held on Thursday, October 5, 4-6 p.m. Guest Host: Susannah Ray, Associate Professor of Fine Arts, Design, Art History, Hofstra University. Light refreshments will be served.  Advance registration is required. To register or for more information, call the Hofstra University Museum at 516-463-5672.
