Pa. Exhibit Shows 'The Warhol Look'
Jun. 03, 2000
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Andy Warhol got his start in fashion, so it is only fitting that a new exhibit at the museum that bears his name reflects that influence.
``The Warhol Look'' opens at the Warhol Museum in the artist's hometown on Sunday after a three-year international tour.
Warhol worked as a teen-ager designing window displays at a Pittsburgh department store and was a collector of shoes, wigs and jewelry.
The show of 500 objects includes Warhol's work and those of people influenced by him. It includes video of Warhol being dressed as a woman and life-sized recreations of his display windows.
``We think it's important for other people to look at the themes that cut across everything he did,'' said Margery King, the museum's associate curator.
