1958
October 4, 2008 – January 11, 2009
It was the year in which American teenage girls said their sad goodbyes as Elvis Pressley was inducted into the U.S. Army; Nikita Krushchev and General Charles De Gaulle became world leaders; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened its doors for the first time; Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Dr. Zhivago topped the bestseller lists; and while the Explorer Satellite was sent into space and the U.S. Supreme Court mandated school integration in Little Rock, Arkansas, America’s kids danced the “Cha Cha”, swirled Hula Hoops around their hips and dressed Barbie.

As part of the continuing celebration of the 250th Birthday of the City of Pittsburgh, The Andy Warhol Museum will mount an exhibition titled 1958 which will chronicle the events of that year when Pittsburgh last celebrated a momentous anniversary. The exhibition will be a pop cultural exploration of the trends, both high and low, which mapped out the aspirations and antics of this prime year of the U.S. Baby Boom.
Juxtaposing advertizing campaigns from the local billboard company, Lamar Advertizing, with the products and product spiel-meisters of the burgeoning television era like the Popiel Brothers alongside classic movie posters, and memorabilia from the infamous Ford Edsel fiasco, the exhibition will give new insight to the era that was so brilliantly portrayed in the period book, The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit and is now being revived in the current TV series Mad Men. Some never-before-seen works by Andy Warhol from this period will be displayed as well.
All of the above will be juxtaposed with a brand new portfolio of photographs by the artist-duo McDermott and McGough entitled “Detroit 1958” which evokes the coming-of-age, dreamy vignettes of the car capital’s upper class teens.
This exhibition has been curated by The Warhol’s Director, Tom Sokolowski. Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of films, readings, and lectures.

Five Finger Death Punch has been pummeling audiences since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, The Way of the Fist. With their hit single “The Bleeding” pulverizing the Active rock charts and MTV2’s Headbanger’s Ball, the album has been called a “Cowboys from Hell for this millennium (Outburn Magazine).”
The band has already toured with the likes of Korn, Hellyeah, Trivium, and Atreyu in the short time since their album debuted in the Billboard Top 200. After recruiting a devoted die-hard fanbase (The Knuckleheads) and selling over 100,000 records - the band is gearing up for 08’s biggest metal events… hitting the road with Disturbed in April and joining The Metal Mayhem Festival (Slipknot, Disturbed, Machine Head, Mastodon and more) in July.
This summer audiences will see why Metal Edge calls Five Finger Death Punch “the sound of violent exhilaration, giving contemporary metal a belligerent shove in an exciting direction.

In This Moment, Bury Your Dead, and Another Black Day
