Wadsworth Atheneum (Connecticut)

In 1964, the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut published Andy Warhol’s Birmingham Race Riot print. Opened in 1844, the museum is the oldest operating public art museum in the United States, and the largest art museum in Connecticut. The Birmingham Race Riot print is part of a portfolio called “X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters),” which included artists like Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Indiana, who all created screenprints for the show. Warhol based his contribution on a photograph taken by Charles Moore for Life magazine, as he examined the dissemination of images through mass media.
