The Andy Warhol Museum has promoted Patrick Moore as the museum’s new Deputy Director. Moore was hired in 2011 as Director of Development, and came to The Warhol from his most recent post at The Persad Center where he was the New Business Development Director. Moore began his new position as Deputy Director at The Warhol on September 1, 2012.

Before joining The Persad Center, Moore developed a national program that addressed the impact of the AIDS crisis on the national arts community while working as Project Director for The Estate Project for Artists with AIDS, a project of The Alliance for The Arts in New York City. He produced special projects and exhibitions with leading contemporary artists such as Ed Ruscha and Catherine Opie. Moore organized two successful print portfolios, The Geldzahler Portfolio and 1989, which raised funds for The Estate Project, which were placed in major institutional and private collections around the world. The Geldzahler Portfolio featured specially commissioned works by Frank Stella, James Rosenquist, Louise Bourgeois, David Salle, David Hockney, Ellsworth Kelly, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Dennis Hopper and Francesco Clemente. 1989 included work from Chuck Close, Nan Goldin, Jim Hodges, Frank Moore, Jorge Pardo, Jack Pierson, Lari Pittman, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, Kiki Smith and Robert Wilson.

Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the place of Andy Warhol’s birth, The Warhol is one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. The Andy

Warhol Museum is one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. Additional information about The Warhol is available at www.warhol.org
