Fifteen More Minutes

Facebook is nothing if not a cultural barometer. At any given time, I can login and see what people are reading (a disturbing amount of Twilight, apparently), listening to (OMG, the new Vampire Weekend!) and planning to do. And apparently, a pretty good cross-section of the metroplex--spanning all age groups--has their calendar marked for the Andy Warhol exhibit opening at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St. Somehow, somewhere, all the status updates about getting tickets to opening receptions and finding plus-ones to come tour the exhibits are making Andy Warhol roll around in his grave, rubbing his hands together with glee at the seemingly permanent extension of his 15 minutes of fame. Andy Warhol: The Last Decade, an exploration of the work generated in the final, prolific eight years of Warhol's life, will have Facebook and Twitter updates buzzing among both die-hard Warhol fans and casual observers. The collection features around 55 pieces, including high-profile abstract works and self-portraits, collaborative pieces with the intriguing Basquiat, concluding pieces from the Last Supper series and much more. The exhibition opens on Sunday and runs through May 16. Museum hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. General admission is $10, $4 for students and seniors, and free for children 12 and under and museum members. Visit
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 14. Continues through May 16, 2010
