“Halston and Warhol: Silver and Suede” at The Warhol in Pittsburgh chronicles the enduring relationship between the two good friends and their effect on American popular culture. Forty original pieces of Halston’s, including a 1961 pillbox hat he designed for Jackie Kennedy, juxtaposed with Warhol’s paintings, photos, and videos will be on view. Halston collected Warhol’s work, rented a Montauk retreat from him, and was a frequent subject of Andy’s work. In turn, Warhol dedicated a chapter of his book, Andy Warhol’s Exposures, to his pal. This exhibit was organized by Warhol Museum and Leslie Frowick, Halston’s niece. (Halston’s real name is Roy Halston Frowick. No wonder he went with his middle name – no one wants to wear a Frowick.) “What a privilege it was to have seen Andy and my uncle together – Andy’s birthday weekend at Montauk, nights out on the town – quiet dinners at home.” Frowick said. All that’s missing is Liza, Truman, Bianca, some blow and “Le Freak” to get the party started. If the museum was in New York (where it should be) and not in Pittsburgh, this would be SOME opening night. The exhibit runs from May 18 – August 24, 2014 at the Andy Warhol Museum.
