POP! Out of the Vault: Andy Warhol's Little Red Book

February 19, 2019 — July 7, 2019

POP! Out of the Vault features Pop art works from the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection. In the latter half of the 20th century, Pop artists looked to advertising and mass media, using imagery that included consumer products and celebrity likenesses across their work. The exhibition features a selection of works on paper and craft objects that highlight the strength of the Arts Center’s Pop art collection. Among this collection is Andy Warhol’s Little Red Book, 9, the book of 16 Polaroids Warhol shot in 1975 as source material for print 1 in the portfolio Ladies and Gentlemen.
