Warhol was a Pittsburgh native who participated in almost every art form and was highly eccentric. His avant-garde social life was legion, but as a practicing Catholic, he lived with his mother until her death. The eclectic Warhol Museum surveys all his work: paintings, silk-screens, cartoons, photographs made in photo booths, and films, including all the celebrities encompassed therein. Every Friday night is Good Friday with half-price admission, dances, lectures, and concerts, plus a cash bar. On weekends there are special activities for children.
