Capturing Fame: Photographs and Prints by Andy Warhol

Between 1970 and 1987, Andy Warhol took hundreds of rarely seen Polaroid and black-and-white photographs. The images often served as a basis of inspiration for Warhol’s commissioned portraits, silkscreened paintings, drawings, and prints.

This Summer, DePauw University’s Richard E. Peeler Art Center will display Warhol’s images in a new exhibition, Capturing Fame: Photographs and Prints by Andy Warhol.

Through Warhol’s profound engagement and detailed composition, the Polaroid portraits of socialites, celebrities and friends reveal their unique personalities behind the lens. These photographs demonstrate Warhol’s art and aesthetics in his curious desire to document the world around him.

Along with the University’s Art Center, the exhibition is presented with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. and the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. Additionally, conservation matting and framing are provided by Robert N. Davies and DePauw Class of 1985.

The exhibition is free and open to the general public for family, friends and students from June 2 through July 26, 2015.
