By Tiffany Fish
A socially conscious collection by
pop artist Andy Warhol has found a
temporary home at the Ackland Art
The museum opened its “Andy
Warhol: Endangered Species” exhibi
tion on Sunday, consisting of Warhol’s
depiction of various endangered species.
The brightly colored prints of the
endangered species are more than sim
ple artwork by a famous artist - they
send a message
about the impor

The 10 prints gracing the museum’s

Carolyn Wood, curator of education
at the museum, said that prints are
meant to provoke thought about man’s
needs vs. animals’ needs. Originally
commissioned to raise awareness for
endangered species, the exhibit should
interest both students and professors,
“Most people don’t think art has any
thing to do with everyday life, that art
doesn’t have a message to get us think
ing about things, but the prints are a
subtle and extremely beautiful way of
doing that,” Wood said.
Berner added that despite the neces

improvements have occurred since

Warhol was the leader of the Pop Art
movement in the ’6os and is most
famous for his prints of celebrity por

icons of the animals like the celebrity
portraits do, by depicting their profiles
