Andy Warhol - The American Dream

This event is now over, it was held on Wednesday, June 7--thank you to all who attended.

Diana Martinez will share the background of Andy Warhol and his journey as a first-generation immigrant from Carpatho-Rusyn roots, to living in industrial tenements in the outskirts of Pittsburgh, to an Iconic Superstar in NYC. Martinez will explain his prolific journey and how he manifested the American Dream. In addition, she will give you an inside sneak peek into the blockbuster Warhol exhibition coming this summer to the McAninch Arts Center and Cleve Carney Museum of ART.

The Woodridge Public Library is honored to host Diana Martinez, Executive Director of Warhol: Portfolios in Pop and Director of the McAninch Arts Center.
