2018 Voices of the West: Distinguished Lecture Series

Saturday, June 16 | 2:00pm

Seth Hopkins, Executive Director
Booth Western Art Museum
Andy Warhol’s West: Playing with Cowboys and Indians

Noted Warhol expert Seth Hopkins examines Andy Warhol’s Cowboys and Indians suite—one of the last major projects completed prior to the artist's death in 1987—consisting of 10 classic Western images that Warhol altered in his characteristic style. The Briscoe Museum’s exhibition features the relatively unknown suite plus four additional test prints not originally released with the portfolio.  Hopkins discusses Warhol’s Western-themed work—a culmination of the artist’s lifelong interest in the region—and its influence on other Western artists.

Held in conjunction with Andy Warhol: Cowboys and Indians exhibition.
