In Living Color Exhibit Opening

March 1
Jepson Center,
207 W York St, Savannah, 31401 United States
+ Google Map

Spanning three decades of Warhol’s career, this exhibition features some of the artist’s most iconic screenprints, including his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Mao Zedong, the splashy camouflage series, and the controversial Electric Chair portfolio. Drawn exclusively from the rich collections of Jordan Schnitzer and his family foundation, In Living Color is divided into five sections—experimentation, emotion, experience, subversion, and attitude. In each, Warhol’s work is placed in conversation with other artists of the postwar era, such as Louise Bourgeois, Chuck Close, and Keith Haring, whose work uses color as a tool to shape how we interpret and respond to images.
