In our great Pennsylvania home, we have access to many cultural significant landmarks. From the Liberty Bell to Constitution Hall, evidence of America’s illustrious past can be found around every corner. A lesser known site of interest we encourage you to check out is The Warhol in Pittsburgh, a museum dedicated to the work and legend of Pennsylvania native, Andy Warhol.
Easily accessed on your road trip in a PA RV rental from Freedom RV Rentals, The Warhol is the perfect destination for the art enthusiast in your family.
Andy Warhol is usually associated with 1960s New York, so why is The Warhol located in Pittsburgh? As mentioned above, although Mr. Warhol is one of the most iconic artists to come out of NYC, his legend began right here in Pennsylvania. Exhibits spanning his entire career, in and out of Pittsburgh, can be found at the museum.
Archives: Everyone is invited to access The Warhol’s archives (sometimes used to house exhibitions) to delve deeper into the work and mind behind Andy’s iconic art.
Film and Video: Mr. Warhol didn’t confine himself to just one art medium. The Warhol puts his films and videos, and films by others with correlating themes, on display daily in both the museum’s theater and galleries.
Art Collection: This installment features art from Andy’s creative life, spanning from his school days of the 1940s up until the end of his career. A staggering 8,000 pieces can be seen and appreciated in The Warhol’s art collection.
