Andy Warhol Museum

Pittsburgh, PA, United States
8 Kudos
Flag
One of the most controversial figures in pop art, Andy Warhol, is originally from the Pittsburgh area. He is best known as the main producer of the rise of pop art media in the 1950's and 1960's, such as using celebrities and even sexual nudes in a wide variety of art styles such as painting and silkscreening and filmography as well. Many of his works can be seen at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh's North Shore and it's the largest museum in the world dedicated to artwork from him. Very interesting works! I was able to take advantage of Bank of America's "Free Museum Weekend" (1st weekend of every month) and gain free admission just by showing my Bank of America credit card. It was a great way to kill a couple hours before the start of a baseball game at PNC Park just two blocks away.
