Warhol Museum exhibit highlights young artists and writers

January 23, 2014 by  

The 4th annual “Art. Write. Now.” tour will be on display at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh from February until March.

This touring exhibition features the winners of the 2013 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. The contest is open to teens from all over the United States who are in grades 6 through 12 and submissions can be in the fields of film, art and writing; winners were chosen by a panel of professionals. The award has been in existence since 1923 and such world famous artists and writers as Truman Capote and Richard Avedon have won it; Andy Warhol also won the award in 1945 when he was 17 years old.

There will be over 130 art, film and literary works on display.

An opening reception for the exhibition is taking place on February 7. This free event will feature beer, wine and appetizers.

This exhibition, like most in the museum are, will likely be widely advertised in the community. This might involve investing in services such as poster, flyer and postcard printing services from Pittsburgh print companies.

“Art. Write. Now.” will be on exhibit at the Andy Warhol Museum from February 5 to March. Opening hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM (until 10:00 PM on Fridays). Admission costs $20 for adults and $10 for students and children aged 3 to 18 years old; it is half price on Fridays. To find out more about the exhibition, call 412-237-8300.
