John Waters is a prolific artist, utilizing his talents in multiple fields which leaves so much to say about him. Well known for his work in film about Baltimore and on Broadway, he also receives quite a bit of press for his work as a visual artist, and has been the subject of more than 40 one-person exhibitions, at venues such as the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California, and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. His newest exhibition opens Friday, April 3 at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York City.
Of all the press John gives, it is rare when he talks about his art. This Tuesday, March 31 is one of those rare opportunities. Waters and Robert Storr, dean of the Yale University School of Art, will be on stage at the 92nd Street Y for conversation about John’s art, only days before his new exhibition is set to open.
