Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, a collection of four distinctive museums: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum, announced on March 10 that Patrick Moore has been named director of The Andy Warhol Museum. Moore joined the museum in 2011 as director of development, and went on to serve as deputy director and managing director before being named interim director in 2016.

Among the projects Moore is spearheading at The Warhol is the museum’s current partnership with The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York to digitize Andy Warhol’s entire body of film works. The epic project is being made possible by the technical expertise and sponsorship of the special effects firm MPC. 

Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the place of Andy Warhol’s birth, The Andy Warhol Museum holds the largest collection of Warhol’s artworks and archival materials and is one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. The Warhol is one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
