Lobby Space. The Andy Warhol museum

The Andy Warhol Museum

Fridays in March
5 – 10 p.m.
Website

Teaming up with UPMC Health Plan, The Warhol Museum is offering free admission to its signature Good Fridays during March. Free from 5 to 10 p.m., Good Fridays features a cash bar in The Warhol’s newly renovated entrance space, with entertainment by DJ Shawn Watson spinning funk, punk, reggae and rock records. Good Fridays are the perfect time to check out the refreshing overhaul of the museum’s first floor. Rethinking its lobby as a social hub akin to the King of Pop’s Silver Factory, the dynamic space features large new windows, cozy lounge furniture and improved acoustics. Among the impressive audio visual amenities are LCD monitors displaying visitors’ Screen Tests and museum event previews, a live EarthCam feed from Warhol’s gravesite in Castle Shannon and an interactive iPad bar. Not to miss is The Warhol Store, one of our favorite gifts shops in town, which has tripled in size.
