Andy Warhol Polaroids, Business Innovations, Women’s March

It’s Dolly!!! Dolly Parton’s snapshot was featured in a poster advertising an exhibition​ ​at the Cohen Fine Arts Gallery. Her​ polaroid photo was on display in the ​treasure trove of celebrity shots Andy Warhol snapped back in the ‘60s. Perhaps it was just a fortunate stroke of serendipity but ​Dolly’s 72nd birthday coincided with the January 19 exhibition ​opening. Dolly Parton is, of course,​ Tennessee’s sweetheart, ​the  larger-than-life singer, songwriter, actress ​from Sevierville ​who ​has ​gained international fame. The polaroid exhibition is at Vanderbilt’s Fine Arts Gallery at Cohen Memorial Hall at 1220 21st Ave. S.  For more information contact gallery director Joseph Mella at joseph. mella@vanderbilt.edu.
