In honor of Pride Month, #UlrichMuseum Curator Ksenya Gurshtein examines a series of #AndyWarhol Polaroid pictures in the Ulrich permanent collection taken in the 1970s of writer Bob Colacello. As Ksenya writes:

“These images capture the spirit of experimentation with identity, self-representation, and self-expression, as well as s*x, drugs, and rock’n’roll, that reigned at the Factory, Warhol’s New York studio and q***r haven that placed Warhol, himself openly gay, at the center of the New York social scene and produced such Warhol Superstars as Candy Darling, Mario Montez, and Ondine.

“Bob Colacello met Warhol in 1970 and soon became the editor of Interview, a culture and lifestyle magazine Warhol published. Afterwards, Colacello went on to write for Vanity Fair. Himself gay – though he considers being a Republican to be a more provocative aspect of his identity – Colacello has been a keen cultural observer of the rich and powerful, as well as the q***r and bohemian, for the last 50 years. His biography of Warhol, ‘Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up’ (1990) is considered by many to be the most insightful writing about the artist.”

Marianne and Justin of Russell-Marti Conservation Services were back at work late last week, doing their magic on the John Kearney sculpture “Grandfather's Horse” (1973), located on the west side of Hubbard Hall on the lovely @wichitastateu campus. Under a tent because of rain, they had to actually get inside the sculpture to fill in breakthrough rust spots on the backs of the bumper pieces with an aluminum-filled epoxy paint. The second photo shows the results of their work—stunning! The sculpture looks better than it has in years now, and the team's efforts remind us once again of the importance of regular maintenance and conservation for these priceless works of art. Now is as great a time as any to see “Grandfather's Horse” and the rest of our world-class outdoor sculpture collection!

The Ulrich is saddened to learn of the passing of Artist Mary Beth Edelson, who was regarded as a pioneer of the feminist art movement and considered one of the notable "first-generation feminist artists." Edelson was a printmaker, book artist, collage artist, painter, photographer, performance artist, and author. The print pictured above, "Some Living American Women Artists," from the Ulrich permanent collection, will be featured in our summer exhibition "Art Is a Superpower," which highlights the Museum's recent acquisitions over the last five years and opens this Thursday (5/20).

Late last week, Marianne and Justin of Russell-Marti Conservation Services worked on the Claes Oldenburg sculpture “Inverted Q.” They had to put it under a tent because of the rain, but were still able to give it a nice cleaning and waxing. The third photo in this series shows what they were dealing with; the fourth photo shows their finished result. The sculpture looks great now, and their efforts serve as a reminder of the importance of regular maintenance and conservation for these priceless works of art. Now is as great a time as any to tour our world-class outdoor sculpture collection on the lovely @wichitastateu campus! #ulrichmuseum #ulrichmuseumosc #claesoldenburg #sculpture #wichita #wichitakansas #kansas #ict #ictart

Thanks for considering the Ulrich Museum of Art for your giving today!
I need a favor from you. Can you push this email to anyone who has an email for Ronald Christ to see if he can authenticate the above two works. These are the two works both on canvas that I have donated to the Raymer Society charity auction and Red Barn Museum of Lindsborg and if I can firm up the authentication then it would benefit all arts of Kansas. These works where found with signed WSU graduate works of Italy at that time in the 1990s known Wichita Art authority to possibly attribute these to Mr. Christ. Please feel free to forward to anyone you think may help. I need to know one way or other by Friday. I thank everone in advance for your cooperation.
We invite you to attend a first of its kind discussion in Kansas. The event is open to scholars and the public. FREE. Refreshments will be served.

Hi, when does Kevin Rabas come? I saw him on your mailer but can't find online -- is this the best website to refer to?
One of today's tours using our new gallery chairs. Their assignment was to choose one of our works and write a paper on it. The chairs allowed them to sit right in front of their chosen works so they could take notes on the piece and record their reactions to it.
