Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square presents a new exhibition that focuses on the idea of fame and different ways it can be interpreted through artwork. Andy Warhol once stated, “everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” hence the title of this exhibit. The contemporary works included have been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.

 

Fifteen Minutes is a group show of works that express the idea of celebrity and works by artists who have become celebrities themselves. This exhibition includes two works by Andy Warhol, Blackglama (Judy Garland), 1985 and Portrait of Olga Berde Mahl, 1986.  Other participating artists include Annie Kevans, Jemima Kirke (actress from the hit HBO series, “Girls”), Robert Mars, Jack Newmann, Nathan Ritterpusch, Daniel Stanford, Ken Tate and Russell Young.

 

New opening date of Sept. 23rd is confirmed! Due to the recent hurricane in north Florida, shipping of artwork for the exhibit had been delayed.

Tuesday-Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sunday, 1-4:30 p.m.; suggested $5 donation

Monday, November 7th – Art Talk: A Conversation with Joan Agajanian Quinn – 6 p.m., tickets $15.
Quinn will share personal stories of experiences with some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists – she has danced with Andy Warhol at a party, she has traveled with Jean-Michel Basquiat, she remains close with David Hockney.  Snapshots from Joan’s photo albums will be presented as a slide show during an intimate conversation that provides a glimpse into the life of this amazing woman’s
career as a journalist and art advocate.  Joan and her husband Jack are still close friends with artists, both world famous and emerging.  The collection of unique portraits created in a wide-range of mediums on display in the exhibition is only part of the experience.  The back-stories told by Joan brings the art to life in a way museum signage never could.  Guests will experience the contemporary art world through Joan’s eyes, and be connected to a vibrant circle of characters.
