It's a party to celebrate the opening of the exhibit Andy Warhol & His Contemporaries--An Urban Milieu: NYC in the '70s & '80s and today. In 2008, the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program gifted several of his Polaroids and black & white photographs to Flaten Art Museum and 79 other such institutions across the country. Prof. Tradowsky is creating a show featuring photographs that reflect an urban milieu--that milieu being New York in the 70s and 80s. He is particularly interested in the way the photographs rather unselfconsciously reflect both Warhol's Factory friends and colleagues and the celebrities he admired. Included in the exhibit will also be photographs borrowed from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; the Trout Gallery at Dickinson College; Amy Elkins, photographer, and the Richard Yancey Gallery; and the Warhol Museum.
