Pittsburgh’s Warhol Museum is kicking off its year-long 20th anniversary celebration with a multimedia exhibition titled “Halston and Warhol: Silver and Suede.” The show examines the interconnected lives and creative practices of the iconic Pop artist, Andy Warhol, and Halston, a popular American fashion designer.

Warhol and Halston met in the early 1960s, but nearly a decade elapsed before the pair became friends. The duo went on to develop a creative dialogue that would last until Warhol’s death in 1987. Halston, an avid collector of Warhol’s art, was one of the Pop artist’s favorite subjects. Warhol even devoted an entire chapter of his book, “Exposures,” to Halston, who he deemed the “first all-American fashion designer.”
