Warhol Exhibit Focuses on Celebrity Culture at the Spencer Museum

When the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence received a collection of 180 of Andy Warhol's photographs in 2008, it wasn't long before the museum's staff felt compelled to spotlight the gift within the context of Warhol's New York circa the 1980s.

Lawrence, KS – What the show, "Big Shots," reinforces is that, though Andy Warhol has been dead for more than 20 years, his fanatic obsession with the rich and famous foreshadowed today's tabloid culture.

"Big Shots: Andy Warhol, Celebrity Culture, and the 1980s," August 15 - December 13, 2009 (note: extended through January 24, 2010), Spencer Museum of Art, 1301 Mississippi, Lawrence, Kansas.
