The first exhibition at our Kearns Boulevard location will be Andy Warhol to Kara Walker: Picturing the Iconic. This exhibit features 90 works loaned from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and The Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation – and is co-curated by the Art Museum of Sonoma County. It is a selection of contemporary art selected around the concept of "the iconic." The exhibition is about icons - whether it is the elevation of the ordinary as in Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, or a look at celebrity icons as in Chuck Close's portraits of President Obama and Brad Pitt. It features works from well-known modern and contemporary artists like John Baldessari, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Kiki Smith, Barbara Kruger, and of course Andy Warhol and Kara Walker. There will be some sculptural work as well but the exhibition is primarily works on paper (i.e. lithographs, screenprints, photographs, etc.).
Students who participate will receive an art lesson about these iconic artists and will create an art project examining how reproduction changes art and the world. Students will create their own prints at the end of the lesson. All materials are included!
