Warhol's "Flash-November 22, 1963"

Andy Warhol
A new exhibit at the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Ga is marking the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, with a collection of Warhol's prints that disseminate the horrendous tragedy that was drawn from five years of the American public's emotional response. It is two things; a celebration of the president as a much beloved leader of the United States and the free world, and through obscured film stills of the moment of the assassination and the ensuing horror, an archival, historical documentation of an event that most people who were alive then, still remember in detail.
