PITTSBURGH, PA.- Teresa Heinz Kerry, head of The Howard Heinz Endowment, announced that one of the Heinz endowments will give The Andy Warhol Museum $4 million, which will make it the third-largest gift in the museum's history. This gift will boost the museum's endowment to $7.1 million and coincides with a yearlong celebration of the museum's 10-year anniversary.
Teresa Heinz Kerry stated, "Any museum can hang around long enough to accumulate and celebrate anniversaries. But the first 10 years of this museum have been years of playfulness and experimentation. I think Andy would have been proud."
In 1994 The Vira Heinz Endowment and the Howard Heinz Endowment gave $5 million to help open the museum.
