The titles of "general" and "president" have dominated the presentation of Ulysses S. Grant. However, these heroic labels leave facets of his life unexplored. By examining the private collection donated to George Washington University by Ulysses S. Grant III, this exhibit illuminates Grant’s life inside and outside the public eye and in the spaces in between. Curated by Corcoran Museum Studies and Exhibition Design students.
Andy Warhol's Polaroids
Andy Warhol's photographs reflect his daily life including his travels, romantic partners, social outings, inanimate objects and preparations for commissioned portraits. This exhibition focuses on the concept of the Polaroid and black and white photographs by Warhol in the GW Collection. If read as mirrors to Warhol’s internal struggles they give insight into his feelings about being a famous and profitable artist, struggles with his sexuality and his friendships.
