Donald Warhola

A Very Andy Show & Tell with Donald Warhola

Virtual event, Thursday, April 25, 7–8 p.m. EST

Next month, we will be celebrating our very own Andy Warhol Museum’s 30th anniversary. Did you know there is another museum dedicated solely to the artist over 4,500 miles away in Slovakia? Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborce (MMUAW) opened in 1991, making it the first museum in the world to dedicated entirely to the Pop artist. MMUAW focuses its galleries on the life and work of Warhol as well as other contemporary artists who personally knew him such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who personally knew Andy. Amongst authentic artifacts like Andy’s snakeskin jacket, prayer book, and cassette player, the museum’s most valuable piece is the Warhol brothers’ authentic baptismal gown, which Andy and both of his brothers wore during their baptisms.

In 2016, The Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art celebrated its 25th anniversary and Donald Warhola, Andy Warhol’s nephew, and his family visited the museum with his family on this special occasion. Zoom in to hear about Donald’s experience at MMUAW along with his personal stories about Uncle Andy—all in celebration of The Andy Warhol Museum’s 30th anniversary this May!

Deirdre E. L., Untitled Sketch

Looking Closely: Lessons from Carnegie Museums’ “Natural History Art” Collection

Virtual event, Thursday, May 9, 7–8 p.m. EST

In 1973, the “M. Graham Netting Animal Portraiture Collection” was established through a grant by the Scaife Family Charitable Trusts. In the years that followed, Graham Netting, former Director and Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, used these funds to build an eccentric collection of hundreds of prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, and archival ephemera by Natural History staff, scientists, naturalists, illustrators, and other makers. This talk will share images and stories from the collection, exploring what it can teach audiences today about the history of the museum, and the history of art and science.

This zoom event is hosted by Carnegie Discoverers, whose members share a passion for discovery and adventure, and are enthusiastic supporters of Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
