Pittsburgh City Paper: The Andy Warhol Museum showcases young voices with Gen-Z Time Capsule project

Pittsburgh City Paper: The Andy Warhol Museum showcases young voices with Gen-Z Time Capsule project. “Andy Warhol made collecting things part of his work, eventually turning the practice into Time Capsules, a project where he filled and taped up boxes with items from his daily life.

I am just brushing up on my Gen Z vocabulary, thanks to this glossary shared on Twitter by a high school teacher named James Callahan.
