Join Time Capsules Cataloguers Erin Byrne, Marie Elia and Elaina Vitale in the Warhol theater as they take the first look inside one of Warhol’s unopened boxes after almost 40 years! Warhol was an avid collector of art, Fiestaware, photographs, newspapers, dental molds and especially the minutiae of his daily life.
In 1974, he began filling the first of his 612 Time Capsules with source material, correspondence and clothing. The Time Capsules reflect more than Warhol’s personal life—they act as an insightful snapshot of the time and contain a wealth of information for researchers.
Please note that this event is included with museum admission -- and as a little bonus, there is a special 50% off discount on Fridays beginning at 5 PM at the Warhol (you'll pay $10 instead of $20 regular museum admission). But if you have a Carnegie Museum membership, then it is free.
Also, the Warhol is open all day on Friday, and so feel free to arrive early to tour the galleries or grab something to eat in the Warhol Café.
For a more social experience, the Warhol Museum is open late on Friday evenings (until 10 PM so you'll have plenty of time to tour all of the galleries) along with a cash bar in the entrance gallery and special half-price regular Museum admission. Many Friday evenings also feature special programs including music, film, performances, and more.
For example, visitors can sit down and record their own short black & white Warhol Screen Tests (where the museum will send the video link to your email address so you can share it with family and friends) recreating The Factory where Warhol filmed many famous people.
