Multimedia: VPR and the Free Press Feature Andy Warhol's 'Athletes Series' at Fleming

The Fleming Museum is currently showing a rarely exhibited series by Andy Warhol, a collection of ten celebrity athletes commissioned by friend and art collector Richard Weisman. Art students -- and VPR -- had the privilege of talking to Weisman when he made a visit to campus, discussing his personal insight into Warhol and his own interest in bridging art and athletes. The Burlington Free Press, in addition to their story, posted a series of images of the canvases as they are being unloaded and displayed.
