New to the Collection: Andy Warhol's Photos

Celebrity Instant: Andy Warhol’s Polaroids 

“Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”

On view from October 8 to October 31 in the Heuser Art Gallery, Polaroids and Black & White prints taken by Warhol in the 1970s and 80s document the people who came in contact with this enigmatic artist. Some still famous, like Maria Shriver and Peggy Fleming, and others who’s 15 minutes have already passed are immortalized in these small, odd, and dated photos. All photos on display were a donation to Bradley University from the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Caleb Weintraub visits Bradley

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On September 18th, Caleb Weintraub visited Bradley for the reception for his solo painting show, Inch by Inch. Visiting several graduate students to give helpful feedback, his visit was short but meaningful. After the reception, where the sugary sweets were plentiful and the drinks were scarce, Caleb lectured to a packed house. Explaining his love of renaissance painting and how this historical fascination fits into his very contemporary work, the talk was lively and even, at times, funny.

 

 

 

Next, Caleb will be in Chicago in October for a show at the Peter Miller Gallery. With some work from the Bradley show and with next paintings and even some sculpture, this promises to be an impressive exhibition. It opens October 17th.

Renée C. Byer at Bradley

As part of the Bunn Lectureship in Photography, the Department of Art at Bradley University welcomes alum Renée C. Byer, a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist with the Sacramento Bee. In 2007, Byer won this prestigious award for feature photography with her documentation of Cyndie French and her son Derek’s battle with neuroblastoma, a type pediatric brain cancer. Heartbreaking and at times gruesome, these photos show the real emotional impact on a family living with a fatal childhood illness, and the beauty that surfaces when love forces us to endure. The twenty photographs for which she was awarded the Pulitzer will be on display in the Hartmann Center Art Gallery beginning August 25, 2008 and will be up through October 10, 2008.

Reception: 4:00 – 6:00 PM October 2, 2008 at the Hartmann Center Art Gallery

Artist Lecture: 6:30 – 7:30 PM October 2, 2008 at the Heuser Art Center
