Portraits of Bette Davis, Carolina Herrera, Chris Evert and more on view for the very first time to the public
In the 1970s and 80s, iconic pop artist Andy Warhol made thousands of pictures with his Polaroid camera. The subjects range from celebrities to unknown individuals to objects that fascinated him, and many of these photos served as inspiration for his later paintings and silkscreens.
This exhibition, made possible by a donation to the Luckman Fine Arts Complex Permanent Collection from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presents a selection of these Polaroids to the public for the first time.
Admission to Andy Warhol: Polaroids is completely free and open to the public. Parking will be available directly across from the Luckman Complex at a rate of one dollar per hour.
