Pendleton Museum to Feature Andy Warhol Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Ore. - A museum on the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton will soon feature the work of Andy Warhol.  

The exhibit - Andy Warhol: Cowboys & Indians - opens Friday at the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute for the museum's 15th anniversary.  

The museum curator says Warhol's work is rarely seen in places like Eastern Oregon, and the exhibit will enhance the tribal museum's reputation.  

"Cowboys and Indians" is a suite of prints published a year before Warhol's 1987 death. Warhol drew from familiar icons of popular western culture, such as Annie Oakley and John Wayne, and set them against American Indian images and artifacts. 

The exhibit is on loan from New York's Rockwell Museum.
