Warhol Museum’s Patrick Moore Promoted to Deputy Director


A year and a half after joining Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum as director of development, Patrick Moore has been promoted to the position of deputy director. Before his tenure at the Warhol, Moore worked in development at the Persad Center, an LGBTQ counseling nonprofit in Pittsburgh.

Moore spent many years as a freelance writer, with articles appearing in the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Advocate. Moore’s book Beyond Shame: Reclaiming the Abandoned History of Radical Gay Sexuality was published in 2004, and Tweaked: A Crystal Meth Memoir came out two years later.

From 1991-2001 Moore was the founding director of the New York City-based Estate Project for Artists with AIDS, an organization that aimed to digitally preserve cultural artifacts of the AIDS crisis. During this time Moore worked with artists like Catherine Opie, Ed Ruscha, Jasper Johns, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman and many others.
