gallery goes POP: Warhol

The David McCune International Art Gallery at Methodist University will bring the genius of an icon to campus with “gallery goes POP: Warhol,” an exhibit of Andy Warhol silkscreen print masterworks, Feb. 7 through April 12.

The exhibit opens with a reception on Feb. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. that is free and open to the public, though a $10 donation is suggested. Nicole Dezelon, Assistant Director of Learning at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, will highlight the reception with a gallery talk at 7:15 p.m.

The Warhol exhibit is made possible in part by grants from the Cumberland County Tourism Development Authority and the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County and through the sponsorship of the Methodist University Arts & Lecture Series, Wells Fargo, Bryan Honda, William Gillis, Janet Parks, and Terri S. Union. The exhibit is on loan from The Cochran Collection in Georgia and from the Ackland Art Museum on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
