Columbus Museum of Art acquires Andy Warhol and Trevor Paglen works of art

The Columbus Museum of Art today announced the recent acquisition of two extraordinary works of art: Andy Warhol’s Karen Lerner and Trevor Paglen’s Reaper in the Sun. “It’s exciting to have our collection growing along with our building,” said Nannette V. Maciejunes, CMA Executive Director. “We’ve added our first Warhol painting, which is an incredibly important moment in the development of our collection. That the painting was given in memory of Shirle Westwater and the multi-generational relationship her family has had with the Museum only magnifies the significance of this piece.” Shirle Nesbitt Westwater wasa strong supporter of the Museum, the first woman to serve on CMA’s board of trustees, and one of the founders of the Museum’s Women’s Board.
