Out Of The Box: Time Capsule Opening

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.

Also, the Warhol is open all day, and so feel free to arrive early or stay afterwards to tour the galleries or grab something to eat in the Warhol Café.

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.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to Saturday afternoon's event at the Warhol, and the Time Capsule Opening. Feel free to arrive a little early to tour some of the galleries before we meet in the lobby around 1 PM for some mingling before the Time Capsule Opening.

    For example, many visitors really enjoy recording 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.

    I'll say something to the Warhol staff at the front desk about the Meetup group if you have any questions when you arrive.

    If we haven't met before, I'll be wearing a red polo shirt with off-white Dockers.
