Thursday Nov. 8 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Pop/Funk: Warhol and Frey

Exhibition runs Aug. 25 through Dec. 29

Please note that the Viola Frey exhibit does not open until Sept. 1.

Two artists, two coasts, two media — Andy Warhol and Viola Frey were central to two movements which reinvented art in the 20th century with the embrace of popular culture, mass-produced images and objects, bold silhouettes and colors.

The pop and funk movements, although deeply linked, predominantly took place on opposite coasts where the artists resided (Frey in the Bay Area and Warhol in New York).

These two solo exhibitions, Warhol’s prints and photographs and Frey’s ceramic sculptures, are drawn entirely from ASU Art Museum’s permanent collection. 

Supported by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund. Visit the museum website for directions and hours and information about bringing classes to tour exhibitions or meet with curators.
