Andy Warhol would have been 85 yesterday–if he weren’t in this grave

ImageDeath is like going to Bloomingdales, Andy once said.  OR  you can just click on the grave to go to the perpetual LIVE GRAVE CAM on the Warhol Foundation website. And yes, those are Campbell tomato soup cans lined up on the gravestone.

Polaroid portraits in Warhol fright wigs, and yes, in Pittsburgh!

ImageThis is the big room at the Warhol Museum, with the big self portrait of Andy in the background, and our (amazing) blue and pink 3D-printed wigs under which guests were invited to pose, for their portait. See below for a random sampling of the many who lined up for this once in a lifetime opportunity. ImageImage

ImageAnd to PROVE it was all genuiine Polaroid portraiture, here’s someone receiving his actual Polaroid, fresh from the camera. 

 

 

Murray in a wig in Pittsburgh

ImageIn the main room at the Warhol Museum, we installed two giant Fright Wigs, under which you were encouraged to stand and have your portrait taken, with a Polaroid–JUST LIKE ANDY USED TO DO! Here’s Murray, doing a test drive. And here’s what the setup looked like, just before the hordes of RAPID 2013 delegates arrived.

Five out of Four ain’t bad, either

Here’s that milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones his very self, seated amongst his busts in front of a portrait of Andy. He had not seen them until he got to the Museum and is still getting over having four more of his own head in the same room.  We’re all installed and waiting for the attendees from the RAPID 2013 conference to arrive. Too bad you’re not here. 

You can go to Pittsburgh. You can go to the Warhol Museum. But you can’t go to Murray’s installation at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh

And you won’t be able to see the giant 3-D printed Fright Wigs (like the one in the Andy Self Portait) AND get your own portrait taken wearing the wig. Sorry. You can’t come. Unless you register for the RAPID 2013 conference, that is.  It really boils down to what you want to do with your life. Do you want to learn about  the most exciting technology happening today or not?
