Andy Warhol. Endangered Species: Orangutan, 1983, screenprint on museum board, 38 x 38 inches, Founding Collection, The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA. © The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc.The name Andy Warhol probably brings images of Marilyn Monroe to mind. What about wildlife and endangered species? Doesn’t seem like a fit for the pop artist? Maybe it should.

The National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming has been featuring the Warhol exhibition, Silent Spring: Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species and Vanishing Animals, since June. The crowds have been “wowed” so far. If you want to see it, you’ll have to hurry – it leaves the Museum on September 24th.

The museum curator tells a little more about the series:

Warhol published the “Endangered Species” prints in 1983, four years before his death, and collaborated on the 1986 book “Vanishing Animals” with naturalist Kurt Benirschke “to raise awareness about the plight of animals in danger of becoming extinct,” said Adam Harris, the museum’s curator of art.

Warhol was also influenced by Rachel Carson, another Pittsburgh native, whose 1962 book “Silent Spring,” sparked the modern environmental movement in the United States.
