Two exhibits opened at the Daura Museum of Art last week, “15 Minutes of Fame: Andy Warhol and the Cult of Celebrity” and “The African Conservation Project.” Both exhibits run through Friday, Sept. 24.
The Warhol exhibit consists of photographs donated to the museum by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program of the Andy Warhol Foundation. Items in the African art exhibit, everything from ceremonial masks to utilitarian vessels, were collected by the museum over the past 20 years.
