Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory was the epitome of New York City’s party scene in the 1970s.
The Ackland Art Museum will bring this iconic era to Chapel Hill this Saturday at the Silver Factory Gala. Chapel Hill native band The Love Language will headline the event’s after party.
The Silver Factory Gala, a uniquely student-focused fund-raiser for the museum, will celebrate the current “Snapshots” exhibit while raising money in a more casual setting.

Doors open at 10 p.m., show starts at 11 p.m.

The gala and after party will attempt to a attract a younger crowd without the black-tie requirement — a first for the museum.
Emily Bowles, the Ackland’s director of communications, said the museum wanted a band who would perform a great live show.
