3) The Andy Warhol Museum is celebrating its 25th anniversary this weekend and today the doors will be open for all to visit at no charge thanks to UPMC Health Plan. The Community Day features art making, gallery talks and activities, and live performances. The Warhol website also promises,”AWxAW: fifteen minutes of fame, a participatory art installation created by interdisciplinary artist Alisha Wormsley. Inspired by Warhol’s prophetic quote, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” Wormsley will transform the museum’s underground studio into a participatory multimedia installation. Visitors will have the opportunity to dress up, star in a screen test, get interviewed by a modern-day Andy, and become famous for 15 minutes as subjects for Alisha Wormsley’s newest film.” Additionally The Warhol’s latest exhibit, Andy Warhol: Revelation will be open to visitors. 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. 117 Sandusky St, North Shore.
