Time Capsules

Andy Warhol collected everything from cookie jars to contemporary art, scouring auction houses, antique stores, and flea markets for new treasures to add to his many collections.

The Time Capsules are Warhol’s largest collecting project, in which he saved source material for his work and an enormous record of his own daily life.

It is in Warhol’s spirit of collecting that the Community Time Capsules were created. Celebrating Pittsburgh’s rich cultural heritage, these time capsules are a collection of personal objects and stories that provide a window into local immigrant culture.
