As Andy Warhol famously predicted, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” From Warhol to Weegee, pop artists were fascinated with the transitory nature of celebrity in consumer culture. Join us in the Whitney Studio for a hands-on painting and collage workshop to create your own sinister celebrity portrait.
This event is free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm. No special tickets or reservations are required.
