Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior VP of production and programming, came to the Friday-night opening of our “Warhol Dead at 21” group art show and wrote about it today on his Andy’s Blog at Bravotv.com:
Leave it to “World of Wonder” honchos Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey to bring out a crowd more befitting the East Village than LA for their “Night of a Thousand Warhols” opening Friday night of “Warhol Dead at 21,” their group exhibition of art inspired by Andy Warhol. They handed out Warhol wigs to all who entered; I need no further proof that wigs make a party great. And here’s me and Randy working ours:
James St James invented a new drink at the party, an Airborne and Vodka fizzy. You take voddy (and I think a little soda) and drop an Airborne into it. It is DeLish! And NuTrish! And very orange! And Fizzy! It’s too good to be legal. Chris Crocker AKA THE “Leave Britney Alone” Guy was there too. It was a scene!
For those of you who don’t know, Randy and Fenton have created an art gallery in the storefront below World of Wonder HQ on Hollywood Blvd. They have monthly installations of art inspired by everyon from Britney to the Golden Girls. They’ve created a real LA ‘Happening’ 4 stories below where they crank out quality TV shows and the WOW Report online. This is a true multimedia company, people! And did I mention that the whole space was wrapped in silver mylar.
