Item #56 Andy Warhol: Linfield College Presents

Andy Warhol: Linfield College Presents

A poster for the Factory-authorized fake lecture series of Western colleges, organized by the (unwitting) American Program Bureau, where Allen Midgette, a young actor and part of the Factory family, toured to colleges and appeared as Warhol giving lectures wearing a white wig. This lecture was Oct. 4, 1967 at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. At least four lectures took place before the ruse was discovered – two in Oregon, one in Montana and one in Utah. A few months later, Midgette appeared in Warhol’s film "Lonesome Cowboys". A very rare and obscure piece of Warhol and Factory ephemera. Item #56.

Condition: Good, folded as issued, toning and some soiling to paper, two pinholes at top left and right corners, some soft creasing.
