Stop 1 (and where we will meet): 2:45 - 4:00 p.m.
The Andy Warhol Museum
What role can museums play in the 21st century? What if in examining the creative and cultural landscape created by Andy Warhol, we find a roadmap to use qualitative thinking and empathy to create positive experience, the way that Warhol created art on canvas or screen print.
What we'll see: Iconic Warhol pieces like 11 Elvises, The Skull Room and the Death and Disaster Series.
Who we'll hear from: Dan Law, Director of Development,
Stop 2: The Carnegie Museum of Art (4:30 - 5:30 p.m.)
What is Pittsburgh's legacy for communities of color? How can we move forward making our city, and all cities, more welcoming for immigrants, refugees and all residents? A dialogue with community builders and archivist will help to shine light on these topics.
Who we'll here from: Dominique Luster, Betty Cruz, Wasi Mohamed
Stop 3: Carnegie Mellon University - College of Fine Arts Building
College of Fine Arts is home to the School of Art, School of Music, and the last 3 years of our 5 year architecture program. This is one of the original buildings on CMU's campus. It was built in 1912 by Henry Hornbostel.
What we'll see: Get an insider look at some of the amazing murals in this building, learn about its history, and get a sneak peak in the very auditorium in which Albert Einstein gave his first lecture in the USA.
