6-11pm

On March 6th, step into the world of Andy Warhol and his original 1960s New York City Factory. The Factory Party takes place in a massive warehouse space divided into nine distinct rooms where guests are immersed in a wide range of art mediums, as well as live art, musical performances and theatrical art forms.  

Several warehouse spaces in the Factory will be curated by Amoeba Music. Our third annual art show will feature work from over 30 representatives of Amoeba's three locations – San Francisco, Berkeley, and Los Angeles. The creativity and diversity of the accomplished Amoebites knows no bounds; look out for film installations and a dedicated graffiti/live mural room, in addition to more traditional formats.

A portion of this event features a re-creation of Andy Warhol's Factory, and is brought you by the East Bay Express; visitors entering the Factory will see live production of art in the style and process performed by Andy Warhol, including silk screening, filming, screen testing, and painting. A Velvet Underground Cover Band will perform, recreating sounds at the Factory.

Guests are encouraged to dress in their 1960s best, and are welcome to lounge in the Factory with "Warhol" and his "Super Stars."

Visitors are encouraged to bring a can of Campbell's soup for the Alameda County Food Bank. Each can of soup donated will enter donors to win prizes (museum passes, original art, local restaurant gift certificates, or Amoeba gift certificates).

The Factory Party is going to be an event of gigantic proportions with hundreds of Bay Area artists expected to exhibit work. More information about the Factory Party can be found here.
