KTRU Tuesdays: Warhol at Rice

In this week’s selection, Pat Baum (Robert Patrick Baum ’70) less reviews and more reports on the opening of Andy Warhol’s “Raid the Icebox” exhibit in the fall of 1969. In the spring, the de Menils took Warhol’s exhibit on the road to the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, which has a wonderful blog post about it.

One of the best items in Baum’s report is the juxtaposition between acting President Vandiver and Warhol in the same room. It would have been great to see.
