Openings! Say Cheese at BAM/PFA's New Warhol Exhibit

Andy Warhol once said, “I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty.” From 1970 to 1987, the iconic pop artist backed up this statement by capturing nearly 30,000 muses (both famous and unknown) with his Polaroid Big Shot, the distinctive plastic camera he used for the majority of his portraits.

Now, a selection of more than 40 of his original Polaroids have finally made their debut at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; through May 20, 2626 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, bampfa.berkeley.edu.

Some of our favorite subjects include O.J. Simpson (above), Diane Von Furstenberg, and Billy Squier.
