The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 140 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 140 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.

 

About The Memorial Art Gallery

The Memorial Art Gallery showcases visual art from antiquity to the present day, including the outdoor public Centennial Sculpture Park. In addition to its permanent collection, MAG offers a year-round schedule of special exhibitions, lectures, concerts, tours, after-hours social events, and family activities.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

The Olde Country Store & More Presents Christmas Shopping Weekends!

Since we can't have our Annual German/American Christmas Market as usual we decided to have a bunch of vendors set up their things upstairs and we will open the upstairs "Wetmore Hall" on all three weekends leading up to Christmas from 10am - 4pm for all your Christmas shopping needs.
We have a bunch of fun and new vendors lined up. So stop in on any of these weekends.

Please keep in mind that masks are required at all times and we ask for your understanding that we need to ask shoppers to wait outside once capacity is reached. This has only happened once during our extremely busy fall season so we hope it won't happen much during these weekends.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The Bank of America Art in Our Communities Program was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 140 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.

The Olde Country Store & More Presents Christmas Shopping Weekends!

Since we can't have our Annual German/American Christmas Market as usual we decided to have a bunch of vendors set up their things upstairs and we will open the upstairs "Wetmore Hall" on all three weekends leading up to Christmas from 10am - 4pm for all your Christmas shopping needs.
We have a bunch of fun and new vendors lined up. So stop in on any of these weekends.

Please keep in mind that masks are required at all times and we ask for your understanding that we need to ask shoppers to wait outside once capacity is reached. This has only happened once during our extremely busy fall season so we hope it won't happen much during these weekends.

Quarantined Studio Visit Series ~ Virtual Presentation

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

 

About Art in our Communities®

The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue.

KEYBANK ROCHESTER FRINGE HOSTS HOLIDAY SHOW “Bushwhacked British Bake Off: Holiday Edition”

KEYBANK ROCHESTER FRINGE HOSTS HOLIDAY SHOW

“Bushwhacked British Bake Off: Holiday Edition” has 2 virtual performances

Just 40 tickets on sale at 3 PM today at rochesterfringe.com

 

Rochester, NY – KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival announces its first-ever, off-season offering with a special, virtual holiday show created by Fringe comedy favorites Kerry Young and Abby DeVuyst: Bushwhacked British Bake Off: Holiday Edition.  

 

Famous for their annual sell-outs including Dashboard Dramas, Drive-In Dramas, Hot Tub: The Musical, and seemingly endless varieties of improvised Bushwhacked shows (including 2019’s Bushwhacked British Bake Off), the barmy ladies are back to help spread some much-needed holiday cheer. Over the course of one hour – using a Zoom format and their own kitchens – audience members will tackle tricky trials and tasty tribulations in their quest to be crowned as the Bushwhacked British Holiday Bake Off Champion. On your marks, get set, bake!

 

The two live-streamed, interactive performances will take place on Saturday, December 26 at 2 PM and Wednesday, December 30 at 7 PM. Only 20 tickets per performance are available at https://rochesterfringe.vbotickets.com/event/Bushwhacked_British_Bake_Off_Holiday_Edition/49109 starting today at 3 PM. Each $40 ticket per household comes with a surprise package of ingredients and instructions that will arrive by priority mail in advance of the performance.  

 

“We’ve been wanting to bring a little Fringe fun into other times of year for a while now,” says Festival Producer Erica Fee, “and we’re thrilled to present this holiday show, especially during a time when so many other festive activities are restricted.”

 

The 12-day, 2020 Virtual Fringe included approximately 170 online productions – both live-streamed and on-demand – more than 70 of which were free of charge. They covered all the festival’s usual wide range of genres: Comedy, Dance, Kids Fringe, Multidisciplinary, Music, Spoken Word, Theatre, and Visual Arts & Film. 2019’s KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival featured more than 650 performances and events – over 200 of them free – and broke all previous attendance records with more than 100,000 visitors. From its five-day debut in 2012, the has become one of the fastest-growing and most-attended fringe festivals in the U.S.  It is also the largest multidisciplinary performing arts festival in New York State. As a bifurcated festival, it allows for a combination of headline entertainment curated by the non-profit Rochester Fringe Festival as well as an open-access portion.

 

Rochester Fringe Festival connects and empowers artists, audiences, venues, educational institutions, and the community to celebrate, explore, and inspire creativity via an annual, multi-genre arts festival. It was pioneered by several of Rochester’s esteemed cultural institutions including Geva Theatre Center, the George Eastman Museum and Garth Fagan Dance; up-and-coming arts groups like PUSH Physical Theatre and Method Machine; and higher-education partners such as the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology.

The Memorial Art Gallery presents Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection,

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

 

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms.

The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue.

The Memorial Art Gallery is pleased to announce the presentation of Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring 79 original screenprints by the legendary American artist, film director, producer, and publisher Andy Warhol, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists. This exhibition, loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program, will be view October 25, 2020 through March 28, 2021.

 

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, Andy Warhol Portfolios showcases a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes not only quintessential works such as a 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe and the early print portfolios Campbell’s Soup II (1969) and Flowers (1970), but also less familiar subjects. Birmingham Race Riot (1964) and the complete portfolios of Muhammad Ali (1978), Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980), and Myths (1981) are just a few of the subjects that underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. The print portfolios Sunset (1972), Grapes (1979), Space Fruit (1979), Endangered Species (1983), and Vesuvius (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still-life, landscape, and also of the animal world. Andy Warhol Portfolios provides a rare opportunity to explore iconic Warhol—the renowned exponent and, simultaneously, critic of mass-media, popular culture, and commercialism—and also less well-known but nonetheless important aspects of the artist’s career, providing a fuller understanding of this major figure’s contributions and achievements.

 

“The arts help economies thrive and enrich societies by creating greater cultural understanding,” said Colleen Matteson, Bank of America Rochester Market President. “Rochester already has a rich arts and culture scene, and Bank of America is pleased to add to that richness by sharing our Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop collection. Visitors of The Memorial Art Gallery will be able to experience one of America’s most vibrant artists through Bank of America’s Arts in our Communities program, which loans exhibitions at no cost to our museum and nonprofit gallery partners.”

 

“We are thrilled to present Rochester audiences with a rich and multifaceted view of Andy Warhol,” said MAG’s Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan P. Binstock, “and we are tremendously grateful to the Bank of America Art in our Communities program for supporting our effort to do so.”

About Andy Warhol

Schweinfurth Art Center building in Spring with blooming trees
Quarantined Studio Visit Series ~ Virtual Presentation

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

What Steps Are We Taking To Make Your Visit Safe?

  • Our progressive tasting experience protects your party as you will never be tasting wine within close proximity to another party
  • Utilizing both outdoor and indoor stations, your party will never be inside an enclosed area for an extended period of time with groups of people, thus keeping the number of airborne droplets lower
  • Each station and highly touched surfaces will be sanitized after each use
  • A cleaner will deep clean our spaces each morning
  • There will be automatic sanitizing stations along the progressive tasting
  • The progressive tasting creates a one-way flow of traffic eliminating cross-interaction with other parties
  • Employees will be wearing masks at all times, and gloves when handling sensitive items
  • Wine purchases will be contact-less

 

What Do We Ask Of You?

  • If you have any shortness of breath, cough, fever, or any other ill symptoms, please stay home to keep our staff safe
  • Please wait in your car until your reservation time to limit the number of groups congregating
  • Nose and mouth coverings are required at all times except when tasting wine
  • Maintain 6' distance between other parties
  • Please follow the Wine Educator's instruction to step back while he/she pours your tasting
  • Please stay in the flow of traffic
