Director’s Tour of In Living Color Tues, April 14 | 5:30-7:30pm Free with RSVP!
Join Telfair Museums’ Director, Lisa Grove, at the Jepson Center for an exclusive tour of this colorful and vibrant show. This exhibition examines the role of color in printmaking since 1945, juxtapositioning Andy Warhol screenprints with the work of 19 other artists, all of whom, like Warhol, use color as a tool to shape how audiences read and understand images. A champagne reception on the Jepson Center Terraces will follow the tour. This event is free with RSVP.
