Exploring TC 540: Julia Warholaposted by: Elaina Vitale on Feb.28.13
Andy Warhol’s mother Julia Warhola moved from Pittsburgh to New York City in 1952, where she lived with Warhol until 1970. In this video, we take a look at some examples of Julia’s striking handwriting from Time Capsule 540. In addition to these letters from Julia, TC540 contains many letters in Slovak to Julia from family and friends in Pittsburgh and Czechoslovakia.
Exploring TC 540: Magazinesposted by: Marie Elia on Feb.20.13
We find lots of magazines in the Time Capsules, but the fashion magazines from the 50s and 60s are really fun. A lot of people don’t know that Andy Warhol began his career as a commercial artist on Madison Avenue, debuting his work in the September (1949) issue of Glamour. The title that Elaina and I peruse in this video is the July 1956 issue of Charm, a magazine for which Warhol created some promotional work in the 1950s.
