Behind the Scenes: Framing the Warhols

Staff from Dry Creek Gold Leaf prepare Annie Oakley for framing.

It takes a lot of collaboration to put on an exhibition. Sometimes we do our own framing, but for the new Warhol prints, the gallery enlisted the help of Joan from Dry Creek Gold Leaf. These are large pieces, and we wanted to have permanent framing systems for them, so we turned to the experts. Two weeks ago, Joan and her colleagues spent the day out at Hampden Art Study Center (HASC) to mat and frame all of the new pieces in preparation for installation.

HASC is accessible to students, faculty and researchers by appointment. Please contact us at galleryinfo@du.edu if you are interested in holding class sessions at HASC, learning about the University Art Collections, doing research, or using the space for an event. The facility boasts collections storage, a conservation area, a print study room and a seminar room. It opened in 2012 and has since served as a resource for members of the DU and local community.

Warhol at DU: Recent Gifts from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts opens Thursday, August 28, 2014. The show will run through September 21.
