Rentals

The Andy Warhol Museum offers an intriguing and distinctive space for private and corporate functions. Mingle with the celebrities on view at your next event.

The special events staff is here to help you create a remarkable, memorable event. Whether you are planning an informal dinner for 20, a black-tie awards ceremony for 100, or a cocktail reception for 300, we offer an all-inclusive planning experience. Rentals include event furniture, audio visual, and staffing, and we work with one exclusive catering company to create the perfect menu.

The museum’s entrance space is available for a 120-person seated event or a 300-person cocktail reception. The Warhol theater is available to host business meetings, lectures, wedding ceremonies, or symposia. Options to add gallery floors, guided tours, and studio activities to your event are available.

Event logistics

Each rental includes cocktail and dinner tables and chairs, lounge furniture, basic audio visual, security, custodial services, and special event supervision.

Event set up may begin one hour prior to the museum closing (typically 5 p.m.), which means set up may begin at 4 p.m.

Parking must be prepaid by client prior to event, or guests may pay as they enter the The Warhol lot.

The Warhol works with an exclusive caterer and offers a dedicated catering manager to plan all food and beverage services.

Choose your favorite photographer to capture your event. There is unrestricted photography on the first floor.

Food and beverage is permitted on the first floor.

Lobby LCD screens may be customized with logos, messages, or photographs.

Museum tours, studio activities (including silkscreen printing), and photobooth customization may be added to your rental for an additional fee.

All items (decor, gifts, cards, flowers, food, etc.) must be removed at the completion of the event. No items are permitted to be left at the museum.
