.@MarDixon Warhol pushed against the frame throughout his practice; I can only imagine that this would continue to be the case today. 2/2
.@MarDixon Warhol was fascinated by new tech, cameras, Amiga computer, etc. I think he would explore new mediums and alternative spaces. 1/2

We'll have one last #AskACurator answer, then our curators are signing off for the day. Thank you for all the wonderful questions!
.@thepaulrudolph Yes, of course! I have an awe-inspiring moment every time I walk into the 'Silver Elvis' gallery or see a new screen test.
@TheWarholMuseum are there still moments when you still experience the awe-struck "gosh, this is a Warhol" feeling? #AskACurator

.@LaTribuneDuLard Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were hand painted plywood meant to be copies of an original, very similar to a readymade.
.@TheWarholMuseum How can you distinguish a Brillo Box from a Brillo Box from a Brillo Box from a Brillo Box? #AskACurator

Thanks for this! @mcachicago RT Since @TheWarholMuseum just followed us (thanks!) . . . David Bowie as Andy Warhol.
.@RobertaUWS 28! Some are sketches and some are captured images. We’re working on exhibition loan possibilities for the future!
@TheWarholMuseum How many of Andy's computer sketches have you acquired and will they be on loan to @ModrnArtMuseum in NYC? #AskACurator

.@Miss_Blis Part of our general museum practice is to restore the collection as needed, which varies from piece to piece.
@TheWarholMuseum how often do you need art restored before exhibition?#AskACurator

Wonderful! @thehenryford RT @TheWarholMuseum We also have a 1967 paper dress that is Yellow Pages themed.#AskACurator
.@wynand_viljoen No, definitely not! Check out emerging artist shows at alternative exhibition spaces and university galleries.
@TheWarholMuseum I other words, is art investing only for the rich and famous? #AsktheCurator

.@AnneBoelyngirl It depends on the show; anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months is typical. But our gala, for example, took one year to plan.
@TheWarholMuseum #AskACurator how much prep goes into preparing for a reception for an opening of a new exhibit ?
Retweeted by Andy Warhol Museum
.@KMDMCR That’s the plan! Everything in each box gets catalogued, put back in its original box, and then stored in the archives.
.@poochiemamma Among the stranger things include a mummified foot and a loaf of bread shaped like a dachshund, says our archival team!
@TheWarholMuseum what's the strangest thing found in one of those time capsule boxes? N
