JEFFERSON PARK — A new exhibit at the Ed Paschke Art Center will take visitors back in time to the 1960s and 1970s with pictures of David Bowie, Lou Reed and Andy Warhol.
More than 20 photos by Steve Schapiro featuring Bowie, Reed and Warhol will be on display at the art center, 5415 W. Higgins Ave., which opened this spring to celebrate the work of Paschke, an internationally acclaimed artist and Chicago native.
Heather Cherone discussed the opening of the Ed Paschke Art Center:
The exhibit, dubbed "Warhol, Reed, and Bowie," opens Friday and runs through Nov. 15.
Schapiro, known as one of the pre-eminent American photojournalists, is a "legend" who photographed not only celebrities and stars but also crucial moments in the tumultuous 1960s and 1970s, including the Summer of Love in San Francisco and the Civil Rights Movement, said Vesna Stelcer, the chairwoman of the Ed Paschke Foundation.
“We are truly honored that Steve Schapiro will be calling the Ed Paschke Art Center ‘home’ for this exhibit," Stelcer said.
