Warhol in the 1950s—Whose Shoes: A Drawing and Collage Salon
Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Theater
Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10
6–9 pm

This still-life drawing and collage workshop, led by artist and educator Mark Joshua Epstein, explores the expressive possibilities of line and texture. Warhol’s 1950s depictions of shoes, including his ad campaigns and his ink and metal-leaf collages, provide inspiration. 

Warhol in the 1960s—Repetition and Identification: A Critical Looking Seminar
Floor 3, Seminar Room
Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10
6 and 7 pm

Works such as Green Coca-Cola Bottles (1962) bestowed a new level of visibility on consumer culture. At the same time, Warhol’s serial images of celebrities and consumer products reveal, we can argue, a desire for collective identity rooted in sameness. This participatory discussion led by teaching fellow Ayanna Dozier will explore the connections between the repetition and circulation of images and the formation of identity. Warhol’s works from the 1960s will serve as touchstones.

Warhol in the 1970s—Mini Tours: Still Life Experiments

Many of Warhol’s series of the 1970s fall into traditional genres, such as still lifes. In these seemingly straightforward works, Warhol undertook a range of formal and technical experiments. Head to Floor 5 and then follow the signs to the start location.

During the final decade of his career, Warhol’s work increasingly had the outward look of abstraction, while still maintaining a connection with images drawn from the day-to-day world. Head to Floor 5 and then follow the signs to the start location.
