The Hyde Collection Art Museum in Glens Falls is seeking popular record album covers to use in a community exhibit this summer to coincide with the upcoming major exhibit “The Late Drawings of Andy Warhol: 1973-1987.”
Warhol, the iconic American pop artist, created album covers for Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Diana Ross and others.
The museum is asking area residents to loan the museum album covers from their personal collections to be considered for the companion exhibit, “Can You Dig It?”
Album covers from 1973-1987 are preferred, although album covers of all genres of music and periods will be considered.
Owners of album covers selected will each receive free admission to the museum for two people.
Album covers are being accepted for consideration through May 29.
For information, contact Evi Fisher, curator of education, at 792-1761, ext 327.
The exhibits open June 21.
The main Warhol exhibit includes some Warhol drawings on public display for the first time.
The exhibit is in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
