Andy Warhol’s Birthday: 8 more ways to Celebrate

#9 TELL EVERYONE–and I mean everyone!–you’re celebrating Andy Warhol’s birthday at Playthink Studio on August 8! Publicity, Warhol said, is the ultimate symptom of social disease. Catch it. Enjoy it. Pass it on. And do spread the word Andy style, because once is never enough.


#10 Find somebody’s face you like and repeat. You can learn how to silkscreen here.

I think it would be so great if more people took up silk screening, so that no one would know whether my picture was mine or somebody else.” Andy Warhol.

#11 Sell out.

Andy said, Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art.         Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” If you can’t sell art, then at least buy some. Plenty of fine works will be available at the Playthink Silver Factory on 8/8/08.

#12 Indulge in a fabulous fantasy about someone you’ve never met.

and don’t just think about your fantasy object. Obsess. Wallow.  Repeat.

Warhol said, “Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.”

L ( Beware! A whole slew of attractive opposites you’ve never met will be in attendance at the Silver Factory at Playthink Studio on August 8.)

#1    #13. Make something no one needs. Andy said, “ An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have. Besides dancing, flirting, gawking, schmoozing, being famous and posing for the paparazzi, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to create your own, original beautiful, priceless objet d’art that no one needs at Playthink Silver Factory party on August 8.

#1 #14 Ask an employee out on a date.

A       A ndy said, Employees make the best dates. You don’t have to pick them up and they’re always tax-deductible.” The best place to take an employee out on a date? Playthink Silver Factory Andy Warhol Party, of course.

1          #15 Start a magazine like Andy did, wait…

and then see if it’s still around 40 years later.

W      Why not? Here’s how. Inspirations for starting your own zine will be on display at the party!

#2      #16 Hey Yoonz! Kiss a native Pittsburgher. Warhol was born in da Burgh, and so is Dayton arts    diva, the fabulous Eva Makstutis. And we all know how flirty people from Pittsburgh are. (Rumor has it that “Eva Destruction” and other fabulous art stars will make their glamorous guest appearances at Playthink Studio on August 8.) Better start planning what to wear now!

the velvets knew how to dress. do you?
