The University of Akron School of Art receives Warhol prints

Published:

The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has donated six large prints, each created by Andy Warhol, to the Mary Schiller Myers School of Art at The University of Akron.

Each print measures more than three feet across. The subjects include flowers, a truck, and portraits of Hans Christian Anderson and Sitting Bull, as well as Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Ntombi of Swaziland from Warhol's Reigning Queens series.

The prints are considered to be "out of edition," which means they are not intended to be sold on the market as part of a limited edition, and instead have been designated for research and educational purposes.

Like other works from UA's permanent collection, the prints are available for viewing by students, faculty and the public.
