The University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor is featuring dozens of works by well-known American pop artist Andy Warhol. Warhol gained recognition in the 1960s and 1970s and was known for challenging the idea of “what makes art.”

The current exhibit, called “Andy Warhol: Photographs & Screenprints,” features a blend of pieces owned by the museum, a few donated and seven gifted by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The exhibit, running through June 6, has spurred several programs and an academic dialogue about Warhol’s work.
