Accessible Art at The Andy Warhol Museum
Limited Capacity seats available

Free to attend and open to all ages.

Learn about how we’re making Andy Warhol’s life and art accessible to visitors with a disability through technology! We’ll discuss the process behind developing Out Loud, our inclusive audio guide available to all but designed in conjunction with community members who are blind or have low vision. We’ll also spend some time with our tactile art reproductions—touchable, three-dimensional reproductions of signature works in the museum’s collection.

We’ll spend about 45 minutes in the galleries and then head down to The Warhol Cafe to chat over lunch. Participants will receive free admission to the museum as well as a $10 voucher towards The Warhol Cafe.

This program is sponsored by Innovation Works, a seed-stage investor dedicated to serving tech entrepreneurs throughout the Pittsburgh region in order to create jobs and to see our startup community thrive.

The All-in Silent Disco
Come dance the night away with friends and community members! This event is the brainchild of several members of the disability community, who are excited to throw a fun, inclusive party open to all who want to participate. Our silent disco is open to all, with vibrating backpacks and floor panels so that those with hearing impairments can feel the music, and everyone can share in the experience. This is event powered by sponsorships from Thrival and UPMC. We are excited to work closely with amazing organizations like Achieva and YWCA who bring years of experience working for greater inclusion.

For any concerns about accessibility issues or have questions, please email Todd.Smith@pittsburghpa.gov
