Unfortunately, big-time art retrospectives are rare here in Stumptown, kind of like giant metal shows (waiting for you, Iron Maiden!) and big Broadway productions (Hamilton won’t be here until the 2017-18 season and will probably sell out in two seconds).
The new Andy Warhol print retrospective now at Portland Art Museum (PAM) however, is the REAL DEAL. â€œAndy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation,” showcases 250 Warhol prints and ephemera and is the largest collection of its kind ever to be presented.
Check it out before Jan. 1, 2017 & if you’re a Warhol fan pick up a copy of the gorgeous hardbound catalog with a brilliant essay by Richard H. Axsom, senior curator at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
