Andy Warhol died at 6:21AM, the morning after he had surgery on February 21, 1987, 21 years ago. As his legacy continues into the 21st century, the World of Wonder storefront gallery will present “Warhol Dead at 21,” a group art show dedicated to the artist and serving as a showcase for Warhol originals; modern Warhol-inspired paintings, photography, and sculptures; and original paintings by Warhol Superstars. The opening-night reception, “Night of a Thousand Warhols,” at which guests will be encouraged to wear a silver fright wig provided by the gallery, takes place on Friday, January 11, from 8PM to midnight, with art unveilings, performance pieces, and readings by such Warhol Superstars as Mary Woronov (Chelsea Girls) and Holly Woodlawn (Trash), and an open bar sponsored by Svedka Vodka. Mark your calendar. More details to come.
