Andy Warhol: Cowboys and Indians at the C.M. Russell
Organized by the Briscoe Western Art Museum, Andy Warhol: Cowboys and Indians explores how the father of American pop art highlighted classic Western archetypes and called attention to myths of the American West in his colorful, iconic style. Cowboys and Indians is unique within Warhol’s print series because it was the first to combine images of material culture with portraits. Organized as a companion exhibition, Billy Schenck: Myth of the West illustrates how the “Warhol of the West” fashioned a new movement— Western pop—inspired by Andy Warhol’s techniques and appropriation of source materials.
