Located in the birthplace of Andy Warhol, The Andy Warhol Museum (The Warhol) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holds the largest collection of Warhol’s artworks and archival materials and is one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. The Warhol first opened its doors in May 1994 with the mission to engage and inspire through Warhol’s life, art and legacy. On top of the everyday museum experience, Brigitte Szivos, Special Events Manager at North Shore, and her team help coordinate special private events — from weddings to corporate events.
Every private event booked with The Warhol is given the option to rent the museum’s photo booth, an Innovative FOTO Triple Strip booth, as an added experience for guests. If a host decides to use the photo booth during their event, they then get to decide if guests will cover the cost of each individual print or if the host will cover the cost. This structure helps Szivos and the rest of the special events team provide a unique experience to fit exactly what the host is looking for.
“The majority of our special events include the photo booth experience in some way,” says Szivos. “In most cases, the host uses the photo booth prints as a party favor to their guests and sometimes opt for the additional package that provides the host with a memory box filled with every photo captured during the party. With the photo booth, we can easily customize prints with logos, headlines or other branding material making them even more special for guests.”
Szivos works directly with Pat Maloney of Innovative FOTO to ensure The Warhol is always equipped with the best technology and help with any customization and branding needs.
“Pat and his team have made the entire photo booth experience easy for my team,” says Szivos. “We work directly with our clients to collect branding materials and copy, then the Innovative FOTO creative team is able to draft it up and finalize the design for us. It’s always great to collaborate with the Innovative FOTO team to help ensure our clients have the best event possible.”
