Webcam to broadcast from Andy Warhol's US grave
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Andy Warhol Museum is launching a live video feed from the pop artist's gravesite to honour his 85th birthday.
The project, a partnership with the EarthCam webcam network, was to go live on Monday at midnight, the museum said.
Warhol museum director Eric Shiner said the project is titled Figment because of a Warhol quote in which the artist said, "I always thought I'd like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph and no name. Well, actually, I'd like it to say, 'Figment'."
The suburban Pittsburgh gravestone has Warhol's original surname, Warhola, the dates of his birth and death and a cross. Warhol's 85th birthday would have been on Tuesday.
