Andy Warhol is Dead. Makes Appearance at AGO

Today marks the opening of the AGO's Andy Warhol exhibit. From the AGO's web site:

Guest-curated exclusively for the AGO by film director David Cronenberg, Andy Warhol / Supernova: Stars, Deaths and Disasters, 1962-1964 focuses on one of the most influential periods in the artist's life. Combining both paintings and films, the exhibition features not only well-known serial images of Jackie Kennedy, Elvis Presley and Elizabeth Taylor, but also disturbing disaster imagery that includes car crashes, criminals and electric chairs. The AGO is the only venue that combines Warhol's rarely seen underground films with his painted works.

Tickets are $18 but the AGO is giving away some for free to anyone who spots a pink and black Andy Warhol hearse they're driving around town.
