Fifteen More Minutes

My feelings about Andy Warhol have always vascillated between disgust — he does seem to have been a repellent fellow — and confusion. I frankly, didn't get it. That is, until I walked into the stunning exhibit at the Wexner Center for the Arts here at Ohio State; their Warhol exhibit "Other Voices, Other Rooms," is a real revelation, and makes Warhol's fifteen minutes seem absolutely prophetic. YouTube, reality TV, Us Weekly — Warhol was the granddaddy of all of them. We're going to talk to Sherri Geldin today, she brought the exhibit here to the Wexner — but I'd love to hear from all of you about your Warhol feelings. Do you get him? Is it art? What do you think?
