    Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square presents an exhibition that brings together world-renowned, contemporary, American artists who, over five decades, have created portraits of art patron and collector, Joan Agajanian Quinn.

    The exhibition, curated by Melanie Johanson with curatorial advisors, Cheryl Bookout and Amanda Quinn Olivar, brings together world-renowned contemporary artists who, for over five decades have created portraits of celebrated art patron and advocate, Joan Agajanian Quinn. The artwork on display includes over 70 portraits, from a collection of approximately 300, realized in all mediums by artists that Quinn has championed over the years. The exhibition explores the relationship between artist and subject, presenting a rare and fascinating look into the creative process of some of the world’s greatest creative talents.

    Included are works by such renowned artists as Peter Alexander, Charles Arnoldi, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mike Chearney, Patrick Demarchelier, Laddie John Dill, Shepard Fairey, Claire Falkenstein, Sophia Gasparian, Frank Gehry, Chris Hartunian, David Hockney, George Hurrell, Robert Mapplethorpe, Kim McCarty, Ed Moses, Mel Ramos, Ed Ruscha, and Beatrice Wood, among others. Also included is the portrait of Quinn transformed into a painting by Andy Warhol’s assistant, Rupert Jasen Smith, which he executed from the original Warhol polaroid.

    Fifteen Minutes is a group show of works that express the idea of celebrity and works by artists who have become celebrities themselves. This exhibition includes two works by Andy Warhol, Blackglama (Judy Garland), 1985 and Portrait of Olga Berde Mahl, 1986.  Other participating artists include Annie Kevans, Jemima Kirke (actress from the hit HBO series, “Girls”), Robert Mars, Jack Newmann, Nathan Ritterpusch, Daniel Stanford, Ken Tate and Russell Young.
