Halston and Warhol: Silver and Suede
explores the creativity and friendship between two of
the most iconic figures of contemporary American fashion and art. Organized by The Andy Warhol
Museum, Pittsburgh in collaboration with the Des Moines Art Center, Halston and Warhol will
consist of original paintings, works on paper, clothes, and ephemera by the two men. Many of the
Warhol works in the exhibition were donated to the Art Center by Des Moines native Roy Halston
Frowick (1932-1990), and will explore the dynamic of their friendship through their mutual love
of celebrity, design, and beauty. After opening at The Andy Warhol Museum, this major exhibition
will travel to the Des Moines Art Center before embarking on a national itinerary. The exhibition
will be accompanied by a major publication edited by Eric Shiner, director of The Warhol Museum.
