Pittsburgh is a really cool city. Thanks to recommendations from my friend Brian, who worked with Mike in Chicago, Melissa and I had a fabulous stop in da’burgh.
Our first stop was the Warhol Museum. I learned that Andy “Warhola” was born in Pittsburgh and is buried in a little cemetery just outside of town. What quiet and quaint bookends to a crazy life, huh? The museum housed an enormous amount of work and fascinating documents from his life, including a room full of cardboard box time-capsules he kept and drawings from the illustration career that funded his early work and party lifestyle. I got in trouble for taking pictures at the museum,which made both us us want to shoot more. Enjoy the contraband and a couple others taken around the city.
