In this program for Women and the Kemper members, Allison Unruh, associate curator, will reveal discoveries and colorful stories she uncovered during the research for the exhibition Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is? Learn about Drexler’s groundbreaking contributions to Pop art; her daring novels; her Emmy and Obie awards; her time spent as the professional wrestler “Rosa Carlo, the Mexican Spitfire,” which inspired one of her novels and a series of paintings by Andy Warhol; her guest appearances on TV shows such as The Dick Cavett Show; her many artist and celebrity friends and colleagues; and how, in her eighth decade, her career has garnered new attention and critical reappraisal.
Women and the Kemper members are invited to bring a friend to this program.
