15 Minutes of Fame: Works by Andy Warhol

Exhibition Website

Mar 3 2017 - Mar 25 2017

Swope Art Museum

Terre Haute, IN

Big-screen star and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, a commercial commodity known to millions around the world, was an ideal subject for the mass reproduction techniques that were at the foundation of Andy Warhol’s art from the 1960s. The Marilyn Monroe series of ten screenprints is based on a publicity photograph from the 1953 film Niagra. This project was the first portfolio published by Factory Additions and also the first containing ten prints of the same subject. The Swope will exhibit additional works by Andy Warhol from the permanent collection of Indiana State University that explore his celebrated quote, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”
