Kinghorn Talks with WLBZ About UMMA Exhibits

WLBZ (Channel 2) spoke with George Kinghorn, director and curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art, about the current exhibit “Andy Warhol: Photographs & Screenprints.” The museum is featuring dozens of works from its permanent collection by well-known American pop artist Andy Warhol through June 6. “This is really nice because you really get a sense of Warhol’s life in the studio. And he would often take over 200 images of one subject, like Farrah Fawcett,” Kinghorn said. The exhibit also will be part of the Bangor Artwalk from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 5, according to the report. The museum will switch to the summer exhibit season starting June 19 with the exhibit “With Ties to Maine,” a collection of Maine related-art celebrating the 150th anniversary of UMaine, the report states.
