Velvet Underground / Andy Warhol & EPI – 1966 Clear Acetate Handbill Cincinnati
One of the rarest Velvet Underground/Andy Warhol printed items in existence, the clear plastic silkscreened advertisement/handbill for “Andy Warhol’s The Exploding Plastic Inevitable with The Velvet Underground” at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati Ohio, on November 3, 1966. The only other example we know of is pictured on a full page in Johan Kugelberg’s definitive book “The Velvet Underground: New York Art.”
This handbill comes from the archive of the late Velvet Underground guitarist Sterling Morrison, and it’s in excellent condition. Originally a piece of tape with Morrison’s handwritten archive notation and inventory number was on the back (this was likely a part of the Cartier Museum Velvet Underground exhibition.) We removed the tape, leaving a small silver ink loss in the upper right corner; the tape, adhered to a sheet of paper, is included.
In overall excellent condition; 5 3/8″ x 8 1/2″. With Recordmecca’s letter of authenticity, noting that this was a part of the Sterling Morrison Archive.
