"Warhol & Waters: Fame & Filth"

"I've always been hugely influenced by Warhol. I think everyone in the world, no matter what job you have, the trickle-down effect of Andy Warhol is amazing," said John Waters in a 2013 interview for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Waters will deliver a comic lecture about his friendship with Warhol and his lasting influence on his own films, the cult of celebrity, and the extremes of the contemporary art world.

This lecture will contain adult content.

Waters will sign copies of his recent book Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America following the lecture. Books will be available for purchase.
