ON CAMPUS

 

'BIG SHOTS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF ANDY WARHOL'
WitchAndy Warhol (United States, 1928-1987), /Witch (Margaret Hamilton)/, 1980, K-State, Beach Museum of Art, gift of the Andy Warhol Foundation for  the Visual Arts.

The Beach Museum of Art has a new Andy Warhol photography exhibit running Jan. 12 to April 3. The exhibit includes selections from 100 Polaroids and 56 gelatin silver black-and-white images donated to the museum by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program.

Warhol collected many photographs of celebrities, and after 1976 he was never without a camera himself. He took nearly a roll of film a day, leaving more than 60,000 photographs in his estate. The Beach Museum's photographs were made between 1971 and 1987, the year of his death. During this period the artist was at the height of his fame and notoriety.

Warhol began his career in commercial advertisement in New York and was instantly recognized for his unique style. Nearly all of the screenprinted images of celebrities and commercial products, such as soup cans and Coca Cola bottles, for which he became known, were based on photography.

One Polaroid in the Beach Museum of Art collection shows Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch of the West in MGM's 1939 "The Wizard of Oz," in costume. Another black and white print presents party companion Bianca Jagger, whom Warhol met in 1971 after she and Mick Jagger were married.
