Wexner Center for the Arts Says Goodbye to Warhol

COLUMBUS, OH.- The Wexner Center exhibition Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms—which has boasted huge crowds, packed tours, sell-out events, record web hits on, and national and international media coverage—will close forever February 15. The Wexner Center presentation of the show has marked the only U.S. venue of this massive exhibition (which also toured Europe), and which features more than 700 Warhol works and items, from film to photography, painting to sculpture, audio material to TV shows, and letters to album covers, in a stunning, 360-degree exhibition design that has transformed the Wexner Center physically and figuratively. To celebrate the success of this show—and to bring people in for one last look (or a first)—the Wex is staying open until midnight two nights, with a full lineup of events the weekend of February 13–15.

• 13 (11 am–midnight), Saturday, February 14 (10 am–midnight), and Sunday, February 15 (10 am–8 pm). Cam’s on Campus café will also have extended hours that weekend—Friday ’til 8 pm, and limited-menu service Saturday and Sunday 10 am–5 pm.

•The Warhol Farewell Reception will be held Saturday, February 14 from 5 to 7 pm, featuring a live auction (around 6 pm) of two Andy Warhol/Wexner Center street pole banners and an “Andy cutout” to benefit Wexner Center education programs, led by NBC4’s Marshall McPeek. Couples are invited to attend the reception to kick off their Valentine’s night—and even stick around for one of the other events later in the evening:

o Hitchcock's Vertigo will be screened in 70mm at 7 pm (a ticket to that film gets you into the Warhol galleries free as well anytime that day).

o Japanese theater group chelfitsch will also be in the house that night at 8 pm and all weekend (the gallery offer holds for that show as well), with an additional short play for ticketholders at 7 pm.

o Nationally known Columbus-based band Times New Viking will perform a show that explores the darker side of the Velvet Underground, the art-rock group that Warhol helped launch. The show (February 14 at 9 pm) is called Times New Viking ♥ the Velvets, and a ticket to that show also gets visitors into the galleries free that day.
