When East Coast artist William R. Leigh (1866-1955) embarked on his first tour of the West in 1906, he recorded in his notebook that his visit to the Zuni Pueblo was like “a waking dream… of endless beauty.” Upon viewing the sacred Dowa Yalanne (Thunder Mountain), a prominent feature near the pueblo, he described it as “…bathed in the magical light of the red, low sun while the town and the plains were already in shadow.”

In tandem with the exhibition Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, the museum will present a new exhibition of work by Michael Childers. During the 1970s, Childers was a photographer for Andy Warhols’ Interview Magazine, giving him access to the artist and his famous New York studio, The Factory. Childers’ photographs of Warhol from the 1970s use subtle strategies of gesture, props, and doubling devises to go beyond the inscrutable icon that the artist cultivated, bringing to light his complicated personality below the surface persona.
