Amy Grimm professor of Art History and Museum Studies at Irvine Valley College will give a lecture today, Sept. 17, in BST 101 on one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol.
The discussion will be a deep look into the life and career of Warhol. Grimm will link the vast artworks and associations of Warhol through his portraits.
“I trace portraiture and how it’s linked through different portions of his career,” said Grimm.
Grimm hopes to reveal to a different side of the eccentric artist which many know little about.
“He was especially awkward and his art was awkward,” Grimm said.
Andy Warhol: Portraiture and Identity by Amy V. Grim will be held in BST 101 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at IVC. Admission is Free.
