The Photographs of Andy Warhol on Display

March 27, 2014

Until June 29th, 2014 a collection of photographs taken by pop culture icon Andy Warhol will be on display at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in Providence, RI. The exhibition is comprised of more than 150 polaroids and black and white prints taken by Warhol. He used these polaroids mainly as models for his famous brightly colored silkscreen portraits of the rich and famous, including Maria Shriver, John Lennon, and Pia Zadora. The included black and white prints document Warhol’s social life outside of his artistic studio practice.
