Special Warhol Tour on March 15 for Members
Click here to register for a special tour of The Andy Warhol Museum on Pittsburgh’s North Side on Saturday, March 15 from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M. The members-only tour is limited to 30 people and the fee for PHLF members (and for members of the Carnegie) is $10 per person.
Patrick Moore, Deputy Director of the Warhol, will show tour participants the redesigned first-floor and discuss the challenges and opportunities of exhibiting Warhol’s artwork in a 1911 building, formerly occupied by Volkwein’s music store and originally built as the Frick & Lindsay warehouse for oil well, mill, and mine supplies. We’ll explore other seldom-seen spaces in the seven-story building and hear about the work that goes into planning major exhibitions and welcoming visitors from around the world.
This is the fourth in a series of “behind-the-scenes” tours of local museums that PHLF has organized for its members over the past few years. These tours give PHLF members the opportunity to explore seldom-seen spaces in the architecturally significant buildings housing museum collections. The Carnegie Institute in Oakland, the Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze, and the Heinz History Center in the Strip District have all hosted behind-the-scenes tours for PHLF.
