Legendary American artist Andy Warhol revolutionized history through the visual arts movement best known as Pop Art. The RISD Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Andy Warhol's photography diary.
“A picture means I know where I was every minute. That's why I take pictures. It's a visual diary.”
― Andy Warhol
The polaroids represented Warhol's obsessiveness to record his life outside the studio, which included nightlife, travel and activities. The exhibit showcases over 150 photographs pulled from a sampling of the tens of thousands of photographs taken between 1970 - 1987. The pictures have also become a basis for is artwork, which is seen through his silkscreen paintings and drawings. The exhibition celebrates a gift to the RISD Museum through the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program of the Andy Warhol Foundation.
