With a Silent Auction and Junior Photo Show Reception happening in the Visual Arts Building on the same night, I managed to slide out of the School of Art+Design and slip into the Warhol 60s/70s party held at the Neuberger Museum of Art.
I could almost argue that some students had their very own fairy "Warhol" Godmother incubating in their closets; the costumes were incredible. Purchase College students immersed themselves in Warhol art, live music by Weird Korea, video projections and free food which was "totally delish" as noted by one of the students.
The Neuberger Museum of Art is one of the University's major assets. Students can roll out of bed and into a party-like time warp that arguably contextualizes the art on display and taught in the classroom. Warhol is a global icon; students, faculty and staff have access to art history in the 'flesh'.
