Andy Warhol Museum to Open in New York

Having recently made headlines for a group of Carnegie Mellon students that discovered a collection of digital artwork in its archives, The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh announced, in collaboration with the developers of Essex Crossing, that it will open a satellite location in New York’s Lower East Side. In reference to the forthcoming site, Museum Director Eric Shiner states the New York location presents “a chance to exhibit more of the collection to a wider, more international audience, and to encourage more people to come to Pittsburgh to see everything we have as well.” Although construction has yet to begin, Essex Crossing’s developers hope to open the museum within its mixed residential/commercial space by 2017.
