From the mid-1960s through the 1970s, New York-based photographer Michael Putnam captured images of people around the world sleeping in public places. His sleepers, found sprawled in parks, curled up on benches, and contorted into all sorts of unlikely positions, were seen in passing, photographed, and left to sleep on. Putnam’s distinctive photos, which have been called “rich” and “profound,” will be at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art in Collegeville, Pa., starting July 8, accompanied by an excerpted DVD presentation of Andy Warhol’s legendary film Sleep (1963).

A special lecture on Warhol’s film work by Geralyn Huxley, Curator of Film and Video at the Andy Warhol Museum (one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Pa.), will be held on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. A one-night, big-screen presentation of Warhol’s Sleep in its entirety (5 hours, 21 min) will immediately follow Huxley’s lecture.
