‘Andy Warhol: Revelation’

Of all the things commonly known about Andy Warhol — former commercial artist, compulsive collector, wig wearer — I have to admit I didn’t know he was devoutly religious. Turns out he was a lifelong Catholic. The Speed is reopening with this revealing exhibition, the first of its kind to examine Warhol’s art through his faith. With over 150 objects from the permanent collection of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it is the largest show devoted to Warhol in this region. The state’s Healthy at Work guidelines apply to all visitors. As a way to say thank you, the Speed is offering free admission for all front-line healthcare workers for one year.
