Works by legendary late artist Andy Warhol will be on display in an unprecedented and highly anticipated exhibition presented by UAB through Feb. 28, 2015. The first major show by an artist of global renown at the UAB College of Arts and Sciences’ Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts since its opening in January 2014, “Warhol: Fabricated” will be a remarkable presentation of private and public Warhol pieces that have never before been exhibited together.
This innovative exhibition will combine nine Warhol screen prints and 90 photographic prints owned by UAB with loaned pieces from the Andy Warhol Museum, the Booth Western Art Museum, the Birmingham Museum of Art, beta pictoris gallery and private collectors, and an iconic photo of Warhol from internationally recognized photographer Bob Adelman. In addition, well-known New York-based contemporary artist Charles Lutz will display works from his “Denied Warhol Paintings and Sculpture” series.

Backed by jazz piano for this show, New Orleans native Neville returns to the ASC stage for a performance of hit covers from his album “My True Story,” co-produced by Blue Note President Don Was and the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. The album includes classic tunes by such vocal-group legends as Little Anthony and the Imperials (“Tears on My Pillow”), Hank Ballard and the Midnighters (“Work with Me, Annie”), and the Drifters (“Money Honey,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment”).
Neville will revisit the music he grew up with and add a few new spins along the way, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style. He will also perform his own most popular tunes.
