Located in the town of Mezilaborce near the border with Ukraine, the Andy Warhol Museum of art was founded in 1991. Inside of the communist-style concrete structure is a sizable collection of Warhol works of art and memorabilia.
While Warhol never set foot in the small town of 6,000 people, the absurdity of a museum dedicated to him in a no-name town might have amused him. The museum dedicated to his works was created by a wave of petitions made by Slovak artists and other public figures after Warhol’s death. In a time where the “Velvet Revolution” was crushing the Communist Revolution, it seemed like a logical choice for Ladislav Snopko, the minister of culture at the time, to support the museum.
