Join artist educators for this monthly tour that focuses on Andy Warhol’s queer history.

Born Andrew Warhola, the artist Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was a leading figure in the pop art movement of the 1950s and 1960s which found inspiration in mass culture. Members of the Warhola family continue to live in and near Pittsburgh

While his sexuality is frequently suppressed or debated, Warhol was a gay man who had several partners throughout his life. Warhol’s boyfriends — including photographer Edward Wallowitch (1932-1981), multimedia poet John Giorno (1936-2019) and interior designer Jed Johnson (1948-1996) — were also his colleagues and collaborators, helping to shape and define his career as an artist. This tour traces Warhol’s romantic relationships and queer identity against the backdrop of the historical gay rights movement in the United States.

Tours meet on the museum’s seventh floor and are included with standard admission.
