Illuminating Visit to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh

Illuminating Visit to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh

The Andy Warhol Museum is located on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, the place of Warhol’s birth and my home town.

Although the museum opened in 1996, my husband and I had never been there – until a couple of weeks ago.

I’m not sure if we should have gone sooner, or the time was just right, but we really enjoyed our visit. It was informative, interesting and not at all what I expected. A most pleasant afternoon.

Andy Warhol was an American artist, director and producer, and leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. The Warhol claims to be one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. It features, paintings, works on paper, published prints, sculptures, photographs, films and videotape.

Located in nearly 90,000 square feet of what was an industrial building, the museum spans seven floors of gallery and exhibition space. Come along for highlights of our Warhol visit.  (more…)

The Gift of Membership

Join me on a nighttime tour of Phipps winter flower and Christmas light show.

As I mentioned in the post, Christmas Card from Old Quebec City, my husband and I gave each other gifts of experiences this Christmas. After spending a fabulous four-day weekend in Quebec prior to the holiday, we agreed to a modest budget for presents on Christmas Day. One gift was a couples membership to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, along with a timed ticket to the evening holiday lights show.

It was the perfect evening to go too, because it was the same day our sons flew home and we both needed something to shake off the blues. It was awfully cold the other night, but that’s where my lovely new sweater wrap came in handy!

Join me now, in the warmth of your home, while we stroll on through the conservatory and outdoor Christmas light show. (more…)
