Museums in NYC, Pittsburgh team up to digitize hundreds of Andy Warhol films

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Hundreds of films by Andy Warhol will be digitized and made available for public screening under a museum partnership.

The project was announced Thursday by New York City's Museum of Modern Art, the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and visual effects firm MPC. It covers some 500 films Warhol created between 1963 and 1972.

Nearly 1,000 rolls of 16mm film will be digitally scanned into high-resolution images. The process will begin this month and take several years to complete.

The films themselves have been housed at MoMA since the early 1990s.

The Pittsburgh-born Warhol died in 1987 at age 58. He was one of the most prominent American artists of the 20th century.

Warhol worked in various media including painting, printmaking, photography and film.
