In celebration of the Andy Warhol: Prints From The Collections Of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation exhibition, Palm Springs Art Museum is hosting an after-hours party on Friday, May 25 from 5 p.m. until midnight. The exhibition officially closes on Monday, May 28, 2018 at 5 p.m.
The Warhol celebration includes the popular DJ Minus spinning tunes, a cash bar and snacks by Dead or Alive Bar, giveaways, and a printmaking lab. The event is free to members and $5 for non-members. Tickets are available at psmusuem.org or at the Museum Box Office, located at 101 Museum, Drive, Palm Springs.
Spanning the Museum’s main floor galleries, this comprehensive collection of Warhol prints consists of more than 250 pieces, including some of the artist’s most iconic works, such as Marilyn (1967), Campbell’s Soup I and II (1968), Sunset and Mao (both 1972).
In addition to exploring Warhol’s innovative silkscreen process, the exhibition features unique dresses, early graphic ephemera, rare books, Warhol-designed album covers, listening stations, print-making workshops, lectures and conversations, artist demonstrations, and other interactive elements designed to immerse Museum visitors in the world of Warhol.
Presented in conjunction with the Warhol Prints exhibition is Michael Childers: Having A Ball, a collection of photographs including portraits of the enigmatic Warhol and his entourage from his New York studio, The Factory. It also is on view through May 28, 2018.
Also taking place at the Museum that evening is The Desert Sun’s popular “Storytellers Project” focusing on the theme obsession. By creating a space where neighbors and notables can share first-person stories, the Storytellers Project explores the importance of the personal narrative as a means for connection. There will be two shows held in the Museum’s third-floor Lecture Hall, at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tickets for this event must be purchased in advance and are available on a first-come, first-served basis at DesertSun.com. The $10 ticket includes admission to the Warhol celebration.
