So The Keller-Parsons recently made their debut in Pittsburgh visiting Van and me. We had a wonderful time doing some traditional "Pittsburgh" activities and hitting up some local haunts. We all especially enjoyed The Warhol and Phipps Conservatory. As you probably assume by the name, The Warhol, a museum with around 6 floors, is dedicated almost exclusively to Andy Warhol, since he is from the Pittsburgh area. You have to take the Warhol bridge to get to the museum. Here is the official website. Although, I'm not a huge Warhol fan, the museum was unique and interesting- and I admire that he was definitely true to himself, and that honesty comes through in a lot of his artwork. We also hit up the cash-bar before viewing the exhibits, in the Warhol lobby-available Friday nights during the "cocktail hours."
Here are some pics from the museum:
Next, on to the beautiful Phipps Conservatory. Official website here. Although it is right behind CMU, we had a bit of trouble finding the location. After getting a bit turned around in Squirrel Hill, we made it and were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the facility as well as all of the Dale Chihuly glass, truly incredible artwork. His website can be found here.
