The Andy Warhol Museum may be in Pittsburgh, but Geekadelphians may not have to go farther than Delaware County if they are Pop Art fans: Beginning this week, more than a dozen Andy Warhol silkscreened prints from Haverford College’s permanent collection will be open to the public in a new exhibition.
Andy Warhol: The Pop Image Subverted will display 15 of the school’s 26 Warhol silkscreen prints, a number of which are from the famous Marilyn Monroe and Flowers series, in addition to a Grace Kelly tile and Brillo Soap Pad. These prints will be shown alongside a number of other related, contextual materials, including newspaper clippings and reference photos.
Additionally, original prints and photography by illustrator Maxfield Parrish, a Haverford alumnus who notably influenced Warhol’s whimsical pop art palettes, will also be included to “provide insight into the serialism of the latter’s color combinations.”
The opening reception will be held this Friday, January 27 at Haverford College’s Marshall Fine Arts Center, and the show will be on display through April 2017. Learn more about the collection on Haverford.edu.
