More than 30 years after his death, Warhol's ability to make the ordinary extraordinary forever changed the way we document life.
“Probably the biggest thing he did was this democratization of art,” said Jordan Schnitzer, allows his Warhol collection to tour museums around the country. “He rallied against the art that was just in these museums for the elitist few. If there’s one thing he was able to accomplish, like the break-down of the Berlin Wall, it was to break down that mindset.”
“Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation”, a retrospective of more than 250 works on display at the Palm Springs art Museum through May 28, explores how Warhol elevated printmaking from its previous status as a commercial format to that of fine art.
