HANCEVILLE, Ala. — The Evelyn Burrow Museum at Wallace State Community College is pleased to announce the “FIFTEEN MINUTES: Homage to Andy Warhol” exhibition is being extended through Nov. 18. The museum opened the exhibition in late August and has welcomed a steady stream of students and visitors who have enjoyed the experience of learning about Warhol and his lasting impact on art and culture.
A recent open house held by the museum featured a lecture by Warhol expert Seth Hopkins, director of the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Ga. The Booth Western Art Museum loaned two large Warhol prints for the exhibition. Though most well-known for his work with celebrities, Warhol was an avid collector of Western art and memorabilia, and produced a series of works relating to the West and Western culture.
The “FIFTEEN MINUTES” exhibition, which includes reflections on the legacy of Andy Warhol, was curated and produced by conceptual artist Jeff Gordon and painter Path Soong. It features both audio and visual artistry in its collection of silkscreen prints and original recordings. The audio works range from spoken word to music and sound created by a diverse roster of artists, writers and performers who knew, worked with or were inspired by Andy Warhol.
Complementing “FIFTEEN MINUTES” are 15 example of Warhol’s artwork on loan from the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the Huntsville Museum of Art, and the Booth Western Art Museum.
