A highlight from The Andy Warhol Museum sale, which features works by artists responding to the Pop artist’s creative legacy.


The Andy Warhol Museum aims to print the future of art activism by commissioning a series of politically and socially-minded prints for public viewing in Pittsburgh

In collaboration with a local screen printing collective, they’ll nominate a trifecta of neighborhood artists to create work throughout 2016, with the results being put on street-side display near the museum. Their objective is to “provide a space for artists to be responsive to current events” and to encourage direct engagement between their work and the public.

The Hillman Photography Initiative at Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) initiated and then documented this process for its The Invisible Photograph series. Read more.
