Seen the exhibition of Andy Warhol photography at the Weatherspoon? The exhibition “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids” closes Sept. 19.
The museum is open on Thursday nights – the next two Thursday nights present an opportunity to see the large exhibition and also to see a film of his life and times.
The film “Andy Warhol, A Documentary Film” will be shown in two parts on back-to-back Thursdays, Aug. 19 and 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Weatherspoon Auditorium.
The film was broadcast on PBS as part of the American Masters 20th Anniversary season premiere in 2006. It received a Peabody Broadcasting Award.
As you arive at the museum, you may notice that the WAM has new signage on the building. The “Weatherspoon Art Museum” letters are made from aluminum. It was installed last week.
