The museum is opening and we have changed our protocols. Learn more about our health and safety measures.


We offer a range of series programs, including the ever-popular Sound Series concerts, a robust set of access events and activities, and inspiring artist installations.

The Warhol presents a range of contemporary performances and experimental theater. We are devoted to providing audiences with a diverse set of challenging and thought-provoking experiences.

The Warhol is part of the Spalding Gray Award consortium, along with Walker Art Center, Performance Space 122, and On the Boards. Each year, the consortium commissions and presents work by artists, writers, and performers who are fearless innovators of theatrical form.

We also collaborate with local organizations, such as Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art. Biannually, we partner with CMU to present Pop Cabaret, which features student solo and group performances.

Public programs at The Warhol contextualize and illuminate the museum’s collection, special exhibitions, and contemporary culture. Programs range from artist talks, panel discussions, and social events, to educator workshops, youth programs, and access events.


The Exposures series features Pittsburgh artists at the start of their careers, honoring Warhol’s emergence in New York City. Installations have been featured in The Warhol Store’s street-facing windows, as a nod to Warhol’s early career as a window dresser. Installations in the museum’s galleries explore relationships with Warhol’s work.
