Art Museum to Unveil Exclusive Poster of

Pete Rose by Andy Warhol on July 30

Proceeds from sales benefit Art Museum and Reds Community Fund

CINCINNATI – Baseball fans and art collectors will gather at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Wednesday, July 30 at 7 p.m. to witness the unveiling of a limited edition poster featuring the portrait of Pete Rose by American pop artist Andy Warhol. 

The public is invited to a free cocktail reception and informal lecture by local gallery owner and art collector Carl Solway to learn the behind-the scenes story that brought Pete Rose to the Cincinnati Art Museum collection. Aaron Betsky, Director of Cincinnati Art Museum and Charley Frank, Executive Director of the Reds Community Fund, will speak briefly on the partnership.

This is the first time the Warhol/Rose poster will be made available to the public. Since the Art Museum commissioned Warhol in 1985 to create the portrait commemorating Rose, it has been the most requested poster. The original painting is currently on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

A limited quantity of framed and numbered prints that are signed by Pete Rose will be available for $500. Unframed/unsigned posters can be purchased for $50. All proceeds from the sales will benefit the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Reds Community Fund. 

The Art Museum is located at 953 Eden Park Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45202. For general information call (513) 639-2995. www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org
