The photo above is from the opening......an irreverent take by some attendees on the Warhol/Marilyn link.
The exhibit is up through January 2nd and has many terrific photos of Marilyn, some large scale. Ofcourse, there is also artwork related to Marilyn. A standout for me was a terrific DeKooning painting. Personally, I would have liked a bit more archival material, but over all a very interesting exhibit. Personally, I'd go just for that DeKooning.
