Art Approval - Apparel (PMS#)

By Wendy

Come to the party for “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids” this Thursday, November 12, from 7-9 p.m. at the Nasher Museum.
We’re rolling out our colorful new Warhol T-shirts, inspired by the original box for the Polaroid Big Shot camera.
Partygoers who wear the T-shirt (designed by McKinney and available at the Nasher Museum Store) can pose for Polaroid-style portraits with our photographer.
It’s a fun way to pay homage to Warhol and celebrate the opening of “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids,” an exhibition that gives rare insight into the mind of the artist who wanted to capture the world like a camera.
The show includes about 250 Polaroids and 70 silver gelatin black-and-white prints taken by Warhol from 1969 to 1986. Many of them are on public view for the first time.
“Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids” is organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; the Ackland Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Greensboro. All three institutions received gifts of about 100 original Polaroid photographs and 50 gelatin silver black-and-white prints in 2008, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, a division of the Andy Warhol Foundation in New York.

At the Nasher Museum, major support for the exhibition is provided by McKinney.
