If you’ve ever been to The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, you know they’re photo nazis there.
I managed to sneak a few illegal pictures on my phone. (The trick is to pretend that you’re texting.)
There was so much to see! It’s the largest US museum that’s dedicated to a single artist.
Andy Warhola–not a typo, that’s his birth name–was born and raised in Pittsburgh.
He worked in all forms of media: painting, printmaking, photography, drawing, silk screening, sculpture, film, and music.
Amazingly talented and highly controversial.
Take a second and think about how his art has affected you.

  1. Good one! I spent my junior high years in Pittsburgh and I didn’t know Andy Warhola was from there. I must stop back sometime and see the museum.

  2. since I went to school in Pittsburgh and worked at another Carnegie museum, I spent many an afternoon strolling through this museum and really miss it (and my employee discount at the gift shop). Warhol and his perspectives on life are endlessly fascinating. I recommend reading his book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol. so interesting!

    I was there! Great museum. Architecture is also very nice. I remember I could only take a picture in the men’s room, which btw had interesting design. 🙂

    I learned about Warhol and Lichtenstein in my first real art class (middle school). Loved them ever since.

    I like how you pretended to text and managed to get some really great photos instead of finger bombs.

  5. Hi and thanks for the follow! As coincidence would have it, I grew up in Pittsburgh, although no one has started a museum there in my honor. Go figure! Andy had a little know younger brother, Pandy Warhol, who also became an artist. The things you find out on the internet.
