Pop ArtJoin us as we go back in time and celebrate the work of renowned American artist and pop art superstar, Andy Warhol. For one night only, we’ll be transforming our entire first floor into the look and feel of Warhol’s famed “Factory” workspace, a frequent hangout for the likes of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Salvador Dali, Jim Morrison, Truman Capote and many, many avant garde filmmakers and artists.

As part of the transformation, we’re throwing a party featuring live music (a Velvet Underground cover band, nonetheless, with guest appearances from “Jim Morrison,” “Bob Dylan,” “Mick Jagger,” and “Janis Joplin”), a DJ spinning 60s and 70s classics, live screen printing, beatnik poetry readings and more. The bar will be mixing up special cocktails and Campbell’s tomato soup and grilled cheeses will be on hand.

Period dress is strongly encouraged, so dust off your best ’60s/’70s attire!

Get the official Factory Night T-Shirt!

We’ve put our own spin on Pop Art with this limited-edition Guinness t-shirt!

Shirts are $25, and are available in S, M, L and XL. We will have them for sale at the party, but you can pre-order yours now and pick it up on the day of the event. Supplies are limited, so act fast!

Special thanks to Graphic Discharge, a graphic design and printmaking studio based locally in Lancaster, PA focused heavily on the art, and following through with in-house print production. For more info visit www.graphicdischarge.com

The event coincides with the launch of two great exhibitions at the Demuth Museum and the Lancaster Museum of Art:
