Pop Culture to Counterculture: Warhol/Drag/Studio 54

Joslyn Art Musem, 2200 Dodge Street

8:00 p.m.; Free for members; $10 for the general public (21 and over)

It’s time to get your groove on old school style while celebrating the Joslyn Art Museum’s newest exhibition In Living Color: Andy Warhol & Contemporary Printmaking from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation.

According to Amy Rummel, Director of Marketing & Public Relations for the Joslyn, artist Andy Warhol was fascinated with identity. As an individual concerned with his own image and someone who understood the creation of celebrity, the drag sensibility was especially attractive to Warhol.   

She said the event on the 24th celebrates “celebrity, identity and image, moving from high art to camp.”

Drag show performers include Aubrey Savage, Anna Roxia and Destiney. The after party features music by DJ Kethro and Black Jonny Quest.
