102558September 16, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — A new exhibition at DePauw University's Richard E. Peeler Art Center, "I Am a Camera," features photographs by Andy Warhol. "The exhibit includes some of Warhol's most prominent work, such as a selection of his Polaroid photographs, screen tests and black and white prints, notes today's Banner-Graphic. "Many of the photographs are shown next to original Warhol quotations."

One of the comments that's featured is, "The best thing about a picture is that it never changes even when the people in it do."

The newspaper adds that the exhibition "also showcases many of Warhol's black and white screen tests. These are silent tests and last three minutes each or one roll of film. These screen tests showcase Warhol's way of creating a 'living portrait.' " 

"Andy Warhol: I Am a Camera" presents Warhol's work in a relational context that illuminates the complex ways in which he used the medium of photography to explore the interplay between image and memory and, 102625ultimately, life and art. Free and open to the public, the works will remain on display through Friday, December 9. They can be viewed Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
