Jay Z didn't just visit Consol Energy Center on Tuesday, he also took some time to stop at the Andy Warhol Museum, according to WPXI.

A photo posted on Instagram by the celebrity photographer Lenny S. shows the rapper lounging on a red couch in the lobby of the museum, replicating a similar Warhol pose hanging above him.

During Jay Z's visit, the museum was closed to the public, according to WPXI, as Director Eric Shiner gave the avid art collector a private tour of the galleries as well as the museum's extensive archive space.

“Art imitates life in myriad ways, so it was a huge honor for us to welcome one of the coolest Warhol collectors in the world to the Andy Warhol Museum,” Shiner told WPXI. “Andy would have loved Jay Z for his defining role in contemporary popular culture, and it was fantastic to see this icon of fame standing amidst our own iconic Warhol works.”

The music mogul was in town for a stop on his Magna Carter World Tour.
