Blog / Famous at the Nasher

The lure of fame is a powerful thing.
The wettest, coldest weather ever did not deter about 500 people from coming to the Nasher Museum last Thursday. Many of them put on candy-colored T-shirts and goofed off in front of our camera in search of 15 minutes of fame. It was a fun way to celebrate the opening of “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids.”

See all of our big shots here.

We invite you to take pictures of yourself and your friends wearing the Big Shots T-shirt (which was designed by McKinney and is available at the Nasher Museum Store). Upload your own big shots to the Nasher Museum’s Flickr Group.

Find out more about “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids,” which 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.

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