June 24th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

One of the most influential voices in American political and social culture for more than 40 years is coming to the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. Bob Colacello, close friend and colleague of Andy Warhol, will be speaking at the Cummer Museum on July 19.

As the editor of Warhol’s Interview magazine for nearly 10 years, Colacello helped to build the magazine into one of the most recognizable and respected lifestyle magazines in history. Colacello is also the author of Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up, a memoir recounting his work with Warhol throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. This book offers a unique perspective on the creativity and eclectic style of Warhol, and has cemented Colacello as an authority on the enigmatic artist.

In addition to his work with Warhol, Colacello has worked as a special correspondent for Vanity Fair since 1984, writing numerous profiles on influential cultural figures such as Prince Charles and Naomi Campbell. Colacello is also the renowned biographer of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, receiving high praise for Ronnie and Nancy: Their Path to the White House, 1911-1980. Throughout his lifetime of work in social and political journalism, Colacello has established himself as an important cultural participant and observer.

The Cummer Museum proud to display Andy Warhol’s Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century in the Museum’s permanent collection, and is thrilled to have Bob Colacello participate in this event.

The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m. Following the lecture, there will be a question and answer session with Colacello, followed by a book signing of Holy Terror. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Cummer Shop. Registration is required, and costs $30 for Museum Members and $40 for Non-Members. There will be light bites, beer, and wine included in the registration price and served before the lecture. For registration, visit cummermuseum.org/events/calendar, or call 904.899.6023.
