CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

ANDY WARHOL: ENDANGERED SPECIES
October 7, 2018 – February 17, 2019
The Andy Warhol: Endangered Species series from 1983 includes: Bighorn Ram, Black Rhinoceros, Grevy's Zebra, Orangutan, San Francisco Silverspot, African Elephant, Bald Eagle, Siberian Tiger, Pine Barrens Tree Frog, and Giant Panda, as well as the 1985 silkscreen, Sea Turtle. An important component of the show at The Ukrainian Museum is a section dedicated to Andy Warhol's early years growing up in Pittsburgh. At the vanguard of the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol is recognized as one of its greatest architects. But the influences from his youth, when he was immersed in the culture of his Carpatho-Rusyn origins, impacted his evolution into a world-renowned artist. This exhibition not only features the still relevant Endangered Species series, but also looks at Andy's heritage and other inspirations from his early years that spurred him along the path toward becoming one of the most influential American artists. Augmenting the Endangered Species exhibition are several early drawings by Andy Warhol, as well as a few personal artifacts and family photo prints.
