Newport Art Museum opening Warhol exhibition

Posted

The Newport Art Museum is pleased to present a new exhibition, "Andy Warhol: Big Shot," which will be on view Sept.19 through Dec. 20. "Andy Warhol: Big Shot" is the artist’s third exhibition at the Newport Art Museum. This exhibition focuses on Andy Warhol’s photographic work, specifically his Polaroids. Using a Polaroid Big Shot and an SX-70 cameras, Warhol made thousands of instant photographs. While some of Warhol’s Polaroids were studies for other works, others were an end unto themselves. This exhibition brings together a selection of Warhol’s Polaroids along with some of the final works of art that they generated. It will also include other unique photographs by Warhol, such as his rare stitched photographs and photobooth portraits.
