Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

American artist Andy Warhol once said, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." In an era of reality TV and YouTube, it appears that his prediction has come true.

Sherri Geldin, director of the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio talks about Warhol's new relevance in the digital age.

A new exhibit called "Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms" is on display at the Wexner through February 2009.
