This morning we’ll head to the Andy Warhol Museum. Opened in Warhol's hometown in 1994, it is one of the four Carnegie museums and the largest museum in North America displaying the works of just one artist. We'll have an expert-led walkthrough of the museum along with a hands-on studio activity exploring Warhol’s life, work, and its relevance today. Studio projects give participants the opportunity to experiment with a range of artistic processes and techniques, including photographic silkscreen printing, collage, painting, digital photography, digital video, and digital audio recording.
We'll enjoy lunch at the museum.
For our last field trip, we will pay a visit to PNC Park, home of Major League Baseball's Pittsburgh Pirates. Opened in 2001 to replace the cavernous Three Rivers Stadium, it is considered one of the gems of the "retro-classic" style of ballparks. Seating nearly 39,000 people, it is the smallest capacity ballpark in the National League (only Boston's Fenway Park seats fewer). Fans of the game laud this intimacy along with a stunning view of the Pittsburgh skyline and the Roberto Clemente Bridge as hallmarks of one of baseball's finest parks. A staffer will show us around the stadium.
