BOULDER, CO.- In 2008, the CU Art Museum received 156 photographs by Andy Warhol as a gift of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. The CU Art Museum premiered 112 of the gifted photographs which include Polaroids and gelatin silver prints featuring celebrities such as Martha Graham, Pelé, and John Denver, as well as portraits of patrons, friends, and anonymous models. Included among the gifted gelatin silver prints are also landscapes and interior settings, both rural and urban, which reveal an aesthetic of the banal as well as the transcendental. The photographs provide valuable insight into the artist’s blurring of the distinction between “life” and “art” and his construct of “the celebrity.” The exhibition includes 80 Polaroids and 32 gelatin silver prints taken by the Pop-Art master.

Concurrent Exhibition: Warhol In Colorado, an exhibition featuring screen prints, photographs, record album covers and other works by Andy Warhol, is on view at The University of Denver’s Victoria H. Myhren Gallery through March 13, 2011. Also included are 55 Polaroids and silver prints gifted to the university by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program in 2008.

The CU Art Museum also presents two paintings by the noted Colorado landscape painter Charles Partridge Adams, including a never-before-shown, large-scale painting of Rocky Mountain scenery near Estes Park, titled Sunrise on the Mountains, circa 1920, recently conserved by the CU Art Museum, and gifted to the museum’s permanent collection by the artist’s sons. The exhibition also features the more intimate Untitled (Mountain Landscape), circa 1920, which likely depicts Moraine Park. Born in Massachusetts, Charles Partridge Adams moved to Denver at the age of 18 and eventually became perhaps the most prolific and well known of the turn-of-the-century Colorado painters. Receiving artistic encouragement from Helen Henderson Chain, herself a pupil of George Inness, Adams shied away from the grandiose style employed by his contemporaries, preferring to accentuate the emotive in his landscapes and ushering in a long tradition of modernist landscape painting in the Rocky Mountain region.

Featuring the work of 22 faculty artists from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the CU Art Museum’s 2011 Faculty Exhibition includes works in numerous media, including video and sound installation, painting, photography, ceramics, digital arts, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed-media installations. The exhibition highlights the breadth and range of conceptual and aesthetic approaches practiced by the diverse art faculty of the Department of Art and Art History and is the largest CU Art Museum Faculty exhibition to-date, mounted throughout the new CU Art Museum Changing Exhibition Gallery, Project Gallery, Video Gallery, and museum lobby spaces.

Faculty artists featured in the exhibition include: Mark Amerika • Dan Boord/Luis Valdovino • Scott Chamberlin • Albert Chong • Kim Dickey • Françoise Duressé • Sally Elliott • Alvin P. Gregorio • Deborah J. Haynes • Jeanne Quinn • Dr. George Rivera • Garrison Roots • Yumi Janairo Roth • William Jude Rumley • Richard Saxton • C. Maxx Stevens • Misuhng Suh • Alex Sweetman • Melanie Walker • Michael Womack • Joo Yeon Woo • Melanie Yazzie
