Though the construction of a dam could offer benefits to millions of Nepalese and Indian citizens such as reliable electricity, better healthcare, flood management, infrastructure development and an improved standard of living, residents local to the Koshi River fear it will destroy their way of life.

This report is part of the Pulitzer Center sponsored project: “Nepal: Water Rights on the Koshi River" by student fellows Jennifer Gonzalez and Steve Matzker.

13 Most Wanted Men: Andy Warhol and the 1964 World’s Fair

Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY

The exhibition takes Warhol’s 13 Most Wanted Men as its single subject, addressing its creation and destruction and placing it in its artistic and social context by combining art, documentation, and archival material. 50 years have passed since an up-and-coming Pop provocateur named Andy Warhol sparked a minor scandal at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. As part of a prominent set of public commissions for the Philip Johnson-designed New York State Pavilion’s exterior, Warhol chose to enlarge mug shots from a NYPD booklet featuring the 13 most wanted criminals of 1962. Forming a chessboard of front and profile views, 13 Most Wanted Men was installed by April 15, 1964, and painted over by Fair officials’ direction with silver paint a few days later.
