Following the success of the summer 2021 exhibition, "Frida Kahlo: Timeless," the Cleve Carney Museum of Art (CCMA) and the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) at the College of DuPage (COD) will present an exhibition of Andy Warhol during the summer of 2023.
The exhibition will feature 94 works from "Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop / Works" from the Bank of America Collection on loan through Bank of America's Art in our Communities program. The exhibition, scheduled for June 3-Sept. 10, 2023, will also include more than 100 works from the College of DuPage Permanent Art Collection.
Notable works from the College of DuPage Permanent Art Collection include Warhol's 1980 screen-printed portrait of Joseph Beuys as well as his iconic $ (1983). The exhibition will also present more than 100 photographs by Warhol from the college's permanent collection, composed of both black-and-white gelatin silver prints and color Polaroid prints featuring unidentified figures and celebrities alike. These photographs offer a rare and intimate glimpse into Warhol's New York of the 1970s and '80s.
The works will also include portfolios and individual prints by Warhol, starting with iconic works from the mid-1960s to the series of monoprints Vesuvius (1985).
The exhibition will encompass the CCMA and the MAC, unfolding across roughly 10,000 square feet of exhibition space. Educational and interactive elements will include a historical timeline, video archive installation, interactive mural, children's print factory area, Studio 54 experience and Central Park, creating an immersive, multifaceted exhibition focused on Warhol's life and work.
Warhol's prints were not only concerned with pop culture and celebrity, but also touched on other themes. For example, Warhol's Endangered Species series grew out of his concern for the environment.
