In 1983, American artist Andy Warhol created the Endangered Species series, which depicts ten animals that were recognized in the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

The screen prints, presented in Warhol’s signature pop style, resemble the artist’s depictions of celebrities like Dolly Parton and Muhammed Ali.

The Warhol exhibit was organized by Art Bridges with works drawn from the collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
