Curator Tour of Andy Warhol: Endangered Species at the East Village Ukrainian Museum

Andy Warhol was a superstar of his own making, catalyzing change and raising awareness for people, places, objects and ideas that he rendered larger than life. In iconic silkscreened colors, Warhol’s 1983 “Endangered Species” series sheds a fascinating new light on his legacy, using his platform to raise worldwide awareness for endangered wildlife. In a guided tour of these works, we will learn about how this series came to be and explore Warhol himself – the son of Eastern European immigrant parents in Pittsburgh. This exhibition is the first-ever Warhol show produced by a Ukrainian American organization – a fitting location, uniting his origins with his home in the New York avant-garde.

This event is fully accessible.
This event is part of the East Village Arts Festival with Tompkins Square Library
