Andy Warhol Museum

March 31, April 1, April 4
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Looking for some creative staycation ideas during spring break? This week, you have three fantastic ways to get to know Pop Art pioneer and Pittsburgh native Andy Warhol. The one-of-a-kind Northside-based museum is hosting its Buncher Family Free Days on Tuesday, March 31, Wednesday, April 1 and Saturday, April 4.

Explore the bright and colorful art of Corita Kent as you participate in hands-on art-making activities in the Someday is Now exhibition, and watch photographic silkscreen demonstrations in the museum’s redesigned lobby.

Pop into The Factory to roll up your sleeves up and experiment with art-making, silkscreening and blotted line drawing, and enjoy family-friendly Gallery Talks exploring the museum’s collections and exhibitions.

What was the King of Pop really like? At 1 p.m., don’t miss a kid-friendly Gallery Talk led by Donald Warhola, who will share firsthand stories and experiences about his very famous uncle Andy. Fuel up with grub from the special kid-friendly menu at The Warhol Café.

On Saturday, April 4, families are also invited to attend the museum’s new Half-Pint Prints program from 10 a.m. to noon in the Education Studio. Designed for children ages 1 to 4, the new monthly drop-in program invites families to create original silkscreen prints along with artist educators.

Coinciding with Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Spring Break Week, the free admission events are sponsored by The Jack Buncher Foundation and are part of The Warhol’s ongoing “Year of the Family” programming.
