Past Event OUT OF THE BOX: Time Capsule opening with Time Capsules Cataloguers

CAL_20120816_unboxed_main

Time Capsules cataloguers (from left to right) Marie Elia, Erin Byrne, and Elaina Vitale

Join Time Capsules Cataloguers Erin Byrne, Marie Elia and Elaina Vitale in the Warhol theater as they take the first look inside one of Warhol’s unopened boxes!  Warhol was an avid collector of art, Fiestaware, photographs, newspapers, dental molds and especially the minutiae of his daily life.  In 1974, he began filling the first of his 600 Time Capsules with source material, correspondence and clothing.  The Time Capsules reflect more than Warhol’s personal life—they act as an insightful snapshot of the time and contain a wealth of information for researchers.
