Old Computer Disks Yield New Andy Warhol Creations

PITTSBURGH (April 25, 2014) Members of a university computer club managed to extract new Andy Warhol creations from some old computer disks that date back to 1985, the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh said.

In a press release, the museum said the artist had a contract with Commodore International to produce images on one of its Amiga home computers.

The old images recently were extracted from disks by members of Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club in collaboration with museum staff.

The museum says the images range from doodles and camera shots of a desktop to versions of Warhol's classic images of a banana, Marilyn Monroe and a Campbell's soup can.
