Member Warhol Tour -- Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen
Explore Warhol's fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom, which began with Warhol's visits to the cinema with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. As a child, Warhol also sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia.
Examine the concept of celebrity through hundreds of these archival items and look into the roots of the global celebrity culture that exists today.
