Webcam to Broadcast from Andy Warhol's Grave
The Andy Warhol Museum is launching a live feed from the artist's gravesite in Pittsburgh to honor his upcoming birthday.
The museum says in a release that the partnership with EarthCam will go live Monday at midnight. The project is titled "Figment" because of a Warhol quote in which he said he'd like his own tombstone to be blank, or just say the word figment.
The Warhol museum says hundreds of people visit the artist's grave every year, often leaving pop culture items such as Campbell's Soup cans or Coca-Cola bottles.
EarthCam says they will also have a live webcam from the church where Warhol was baptized, and that people will be able to send flowers and watch as they are delivered to the grave.
