The Andy Warhol Museum will celebrate its 20th Anniversary with a Gala Dinner and debut of its newly reinstalled permanent collection. Experience the seven floors of renewed gallery spaces and a new take on Warhol with guests from around the globe for the fabulous fete taking place on Saturday May 17, at The Warhol. The evening will also feature the opening of Halston & Warhol: Silver and Suede so the fashionista crowd will be out in full force, led by style icon, Diane von Furstenberg. Following the evening’s celebrations, the museum will open to the public at midnight, free of charge, until 5:00pm on Sunday. What fun!
We received a request from a reader for what to wear to this incredible art, fashion and social event. We were thrilled because it gave us a chance to go onto the wonderful website at The Warhol and reminisce about the “good old days,” when young, new to the city and open for adventure. Andy would have loved the hot, hot pink and flamboyant bling in these ensemble meant to pop with excitement.

More than twenty years after his death, Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture. Warhol’s life and work inspires creative thinkers worldwide thanks to his enduring imagery, his artfully cultivated celebrity, and the ongoing research of dedicated scholars. His impact as an artist is far deeper and greater than his one prescient observation that “everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” His omnivorous curiosity resulted in an enormous body of work that spanned every available medium and most importantly contributed to the collapse of boundaries between high and low culture.
