Innovation at The Warhol

There is a superb profile of Eric Shiner, acting Director of The Warhol Museum, in today's Post-Gazette.  Kudos to Mary Thomas, who wrote it, to Rebecca Droke, who shot a marvelous photo of Eric, and to Eric himself, for his characteristically thoughtful and inspirational words.

The art worlds of Pittsburgh -- note the plural -- have a tremendous amount of activity underway and even more potential, especially in the art-meets-modern-commerce spaces pioneered by Andy Warhol and being extended at places like the Entertainment Technology Center at CMU.  These are places and spaces where innovation and creativity is emerging in new and amazing ways.

See also earlier profiels of Eric Shiner at Pop City and in the Carnegie Museums' house magazine.
