Recurring Event 30th Anniversary Gala

The Warhol 30th Anniversary Gala

Every five years, we celebrate the establishment of the largest single artist museum in North America, in a city that shaped the artist Andy Warhol went on to become.

We will present our 30th Anniversary Gala at Rivers of Steel’s Carrie Blast Furnaces, a National Historical Landmark and vestige of 20th century Pittsburgh. This unique post-industrial venue will dance between legacy and the leading edge as it is presented in conversation with the contemporary pop art of KAWS. Read more about our exhibition KAWS + Warhol.

The gala is a vibrant black-tie event and fundraiser for the museum that is poised to welcome friends of The Warhol from across the globe for an unforgettable evening of creative cocktails, an intimate seated dinner, benefit art auction, and live entertainment by the highly influential and internationally famous band, Devo.

Culminating during the Gala will be an online benefit auction titled Bob’s Picks, personally curated by Bob Colacello, featuring some of the hottest established and emerging artists working today. Proceeds will benefit all aspects of our curatorial practice and education programming.
