black like andy

Tonight at 6 pm, the Baltimore Museum of Art is the place to be.

DC collector, curator, and all-around arts agitator Henry Thaggert will be giving an expanded version of a talk I first heard him give (and wrote about here) at the Phillips about a year ago (you know, before it burned down):

Was Andy Warhol Black?
The Emergence of Black Figurative Artists in the 1960s
Thursday, September 9, 6 p.m.
Join arts patron and collector Henry L. Thaggert in a conversation about how Andy Warhol's role in Pop Art changed collecting preferences in a way that opened doors for black contemporary artists. Reception follows. Open to the public. Arrive early. Space is limited.

Of course I am
hopelessly biased when it comes to Henry, but, hey, trust me: This will be a smart, thought-provoking talk--definitely worth your time.

Henry Thaggert should have some interesting commentary on Andy Warhol although the title is needlessly provocative. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.
