Nope, sorry, not a St. Patrick’s Day promotion. Pittsburgh Green Drinks is a monthly happy hour for anyone interested in the environment. This month’s Green Drinks is extra great. I have long been fascinated with Andy Warhol’s time capsules, so I think meeting a Warhol Archivist is a treat. Free admission to the Warhol is another great reason to go green this Friday.
Here are the Details:
WHAT: Green Drinks
WHERE: Warhol Museum
WHEN: Friday, March 16, 5:30-7:30
COST: Free Admission, Cash Bar
HOSTS: Matt Wrbican, The Warhol’s Archivist, Patty DeMarco, Executive Director of the Rachel Carson Homestead Association
Join us for a Green Drinks at The Warhol, where the exhibition, “6 BILLION PERPS HELD HOSTAGE! Artists Address Global Warming” is currently on view. Matt Wrbican, The Warhol’s Archivist and exhibition Curator, will discuss the exhibit, and its part in the Rachel Carson Centennial Celebration.
Bring your friends and colleagues to hear about the this showcase of a diverse collection of art works, including textiles, videos, paintings, drawings, inflatables, photography and music, all directing attention to the topic of global warming. These works serve to raise awareness of our current state of affairs, including U.S. policy, natural disasters, the destructive power of corporations, and the harmful effects of carbon production in the food industry as well as initiate public dialog about the issue. Meet others who share a common interest – join environmentalists, journalists, academics, elected officials, green builders, green businesses and health care professionals, chemists, developers, artists, students and just about anyone who is interested in a better environment. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.
Green Drinks meets on the 3rd Friday of each month from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM at rotating locations. Mark the date in your calendar, and we’ll email you each month with the location and the speaker.
