Nominated for Senior Leadership Recognition
Carnegie Mellon University
Annually, Carnegie Mellon University recognizes graduating seniors via a process known as Senior Leadership Recognition, where staff and faculty across the University nominate students who have made significant contributions during their time as a member of the Carnegie Mellon University community. While we have many talented and involved students in each graduating class, this recognition is reserved for those students who have made an unparalleled impact on our community. These individuals leave Carnegie Mellon a better place as a result of their leadership, vision, and initiative. Each recipient of this recognition has created a unique imprint on the culture and life of this institution through his or her contributions to academics and research, the arts, athletics, civic engagement, and community development.
"Earnest creates three new large-scale paintings that incorporate details from the private, residential spaces of both Andy Warhol and Chow. Mined from the Sotheby’s catalogues of Warhol’s estate sale, Earnest incorporates objects and other interior details from Warhol’s private townhouse. Famous for his collection of cookie jars, Warhol was also an avid collector of American decorative art and paintings from his contemporaries like Basquiat and Lichtenstein. Bringing these objects in dialogue with details from Chow’s home in Los Angeles, sourced from press articles online, Earnest’s paintings present abstracted views of the private dwellings of these two famous personas."
