For the first time, Augustana University's Eide/Dalrymple Gallery will exhibit prints by artist Andy Warhol, during its “Highlights from the Permanent Collection” exhibition, on display Feb. 11 through March 5. The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts recently donated eight screen prints and one lithograph by the artist to the gallery’s Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection.
"On view with the works by Warhol will be a selection of Modernist artworks that will put into context how Warhol’s Pop Art relates to other artistic movements of the twentieth century," said Dr. Lindsay Twa, Eide/Dalrymple Gallery director. “Viewers will be able to experience a wide selection of paintings, photographs and prints from the famous abstract expressionist Robert Motherwell, to architect Le Corbusier, to regionally famous artists, including Carl Grupp and Lloyd Menard."
A gallery reception and curators' talk is set for 7-9pm on Friday, Feb. 12. The exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.
