Spirit
December 21
6 — 9 p.m. (all ages); 9 p.m. — 2 a.m. (21+)

The iconic images, and compassionate spirit, of Pittsburgh native and Pop Art king Andy Warhol are providing the inspiration for a night of doing good in Lawrenceville.

This holiday-themed celebration with a big-hearted charitable twist is twice as nice, featuring both an all-ages session and a 21+ party.

Come draped in your hippest 1970s-era attire and dance to music by DJs Pandemic Pete, Arie Cole, Jesley Snipes and Keebs. Donate a can of food at the entrance and get a free can of PBR. All event proceeds will benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.

Step into an ethereal recreation of Warhol’s Silver Cloud room featuring 50 delicately floating pillows. Be an artist as you find and stack Andy’s iconic Brillo Boxes — re-created by artist Brian Gonnella — rearranging them into your own creations.

Spirit’s 21st-century Silver Factory will also feature live eye-popping projections of super-sized soup cans by Projectile Objects, and large-scale spray art created by Shane Pilster from Rivers of Steel.

This is a great way to take a break from the consumeristic, stress-heavy tendencies of the modern holiday season, and have a lot of fun, too.

See all events.
