Women and the Kemper: Behind the Scenes—The Life of Rosalyn Drexler

February 22, 2017
10a reception, 10:30a program

In this program for Women and the Kemper members, Allison Unruh, associate curator, will reveal discoveries and colorful stories she uncovered during the research for the exhibition Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is? Learn about Drexler’s groundbreaking contributions to Pop art; her daring novels; her Emmy and Obie awards; her time spent as the professional wrestler “Rosa Carlo, the Mexican Spitfire,” which inspired one of her novels and a series of paintings by Andy Warhol; her guest appearances on TV shows such as The Dick Cavett Show; her many artist and celebrity friends and colleagues; and how, in her eighth decade, her career has garnered new attention and critical reappraisal.

Women and the Kemper members are invited to bring a friend to this program.
