Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species

The Pop Art Icon was commissioned by art dealers Ronald and Frayda Feldman to create a series of screenprints to raise the profile of endangered animals in 1983, the tenth anniversary of the Endangered Species Act. Four decades later, seven of those ten species Warhol highlighted remain at risk of extinction. The collection asks us to reflect on the need for actionable conservation—and leverages the same style Warhol used for celebrities like Marilyn Monroe to share that the animals deserve the same level of cognition and attention.
