Warhol exhibit extended at Dalí Museum

Andy's sticking around a little longer.

"Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality." has been such a popular exhibition at the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, its stay has been extended for five weeks. Scheduled to close on April 27, the exhibition will instead remain through June 1.

Warhol (1928-1987) is probably the most famous American artist of the 20th century and was the star of the Pop Art Movement, which featured appropriated images and sleek surfaces.

The show at the Dalí features 125 paintings, prints and drawings that are on loan from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. Visitor numbers are up at least 40 percent since the exhibit opened in January but museum officials could not provide specific figures.

The Dalí Museum is located One Dalí Blvd. (Bayshore Drive at Fifth Ave., SE), St. Petersburg . For information about hours and admission, go to the or call (727) 823-3767.
