Andy Warhol Portfolios: Life & Legends

Arts.Pepperdine.edu/Museum

The galleries at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University are filled with the exhibit ANDY WARHOL PORTFOLIOS: LIFE & LEGENDS. This exhibit looks at the famous Pop artist’s humanistic side by exploring his interest in Life—the grand drama of human existence—and in Legends—those people and things that have become famous icons in our culture.

As a founding member of the 1960s Pop Art movement, WARHOL revolutionized contemporary culture by exploring connections between advertising, celebrity, and fine art. This exhibition features over 80 works from his silkscreen portfolios. It includes some of his best known images, including his Campbell Soup Cans, Flowers, and Marilyn Monroe, as well as other series inspired by his obsession with famous people and popular culture—such as Muhammad Ali, the Wicked Witch and Uncle Sam. Together these works offer a portrait of one of the nation’s most fascinating and enigmatic artists as well as a revealing mirror of postwar American society.

The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and one hour prior to most performances through intermission. Admission is FREE.

Endangered Grevy’s Zebras
Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens
5333 Zoo Drive
Los Angeles
http://www.lazoo.org

New at the Los Angeles Zoo four Grevy’s zebras, the largest of the three species of zebra, is easily distinguished from plain and mountain zebras due to their larger frame, thin striping patterns, giant round ears, and white belly.

Found in the deserts of northern Kenya and Ethiopia, the Grevy’s zebra population is rapidly declining, estimated at less than 2,500 left in the wild, due to habitat loss, reduction of available water sources, overgrazing and competition from domesticated animals, and hunting.

The new herd, consisting of one male, four years old from the Bronx Zoo, and three females, all two years old and younger and from the Jacksonville Zoo and the Oglebay Park Good Zoo, were sent to the L.A. Zoo as part of a breeding recommendation from the Association of Zoo’s and Aquarium’s (AZA) Species Survival Program. The L.A. Zoo hopes the new group will interact positively and lead to offspring that would help educate guests about the continually declining population of this species in the wild.
