The event will take place in the Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater located on the 3rd Floor of the museum.

The event is presented in conjunction with “Andy Warhol– From A to B and Back Again,” a retrospective exhibition featuring more than 350 Warhol works, which is on display at the Whitney through March 31. The exhibition is the largest show devoted to a single artist since the Museum moved to its downtown location. Further, the exhibition is the first major Warhol retrospective organized by an American museum since 1989.
“What is it about Warhol that…?” is part of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s year-round community programming that reinforces the Museum’s commitment to serve a wide variety of audiences in celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture, as well as supporting artists themselves.
