Bo Emerson of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes that the exhibition, “Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation,” will be extended. The High Museum extended the show for an extra week, “We hope that anyone who hasn’t yet had the chance to see the exhibition pays us a visit before it leaves Atlanta,” said director Rand Suffolk.
The sweeping collection of 250 works and ephemera by Warhol come exclusively from the collections of Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, in Portland, Oregon.
Warhol’s first screen prints, “Marilyn Monroe,” were created in 1967 at his Factory studio. He continued making screen prints of prominent characters in the world, focusing on themes of America’s new preoccupations including the growth of the consumer culture and America’s obsession with all things “celebrity, fashion, politics, sensationalism, and scandal,” writes the High.
