Andy Warhol's art is represented in a big way at an superb exhibition at the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg that shows us the person as a famous celebrity and pop artist. He was also a family man with brothers, nieces and nephews. One of them, James Warhola (Andy dropped the "a" early in his career), is a respected illustrator and children's book author. His first, the award-winning Uncle Andy's: A Faabbbulous Visit With Andy Warhol (Putnam, 2003), is also faabbbulous, with a plot built around family visits to Warhol's home in New York. Warhola will deliver a talk from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Dalí about his famous uncle and sign copies of his books. A reading begins at 1:30 p.m. $5 (event only, not gallery admission), children younger than 5 free. At 1 Dalí Blvd. (Bayshore Drive and Fifth Avenue SE); thedali.org or (727) 823-3767.
