The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts is hosting an exhibit of more than 100 Andy Warhol pieces, entitled “Warhol: Fabricated,” now through February 28. Warhol was a groundbreaking 20th century American printmaker, photographer and filmmaker, as well as a leading figure in the pop art movement.
Loaned pieces from the Andy Warhol Museum, the Birmingham Museum of Art and the Booth Western Art Museum are included. Several signature Warhol pieces, including “Marilyn,” “Vote McGovern” and “Birmingham Race Riot,” which have never been shown in Birmingham, anchor the collection.
Robert Palazzo, Ph.D., dean of the UAB College of Arts and Sciences, said, “The show will be a regional draw, attracting art enthusiasts, critics and attendees from throughout the Southeast.”
Admission to the AEIVA is free. It is open to the public 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sundays and during holidays.
