Yes, I did get the invitation to the opening of Bhodi Silverman's new art gallery in Ritch last week (event executed by hostess extraordinaire Baccara Rhodes) and I also read that it would be an Andy Warhol-themed party, in which guests would mingle while wearing avatars inspired by the pop art master (created by Nephilaine Protagonist, no slouch in artistic rendering, herself.) I missed it anyway, and ended up kicking myself for flaking, after getting word that it was about as entertainingly surreal as you'd imagine. Even Philip Linden showed, and since everyone at the party removed their avatar names, to make themselves unrecognizable while disguised at Warhol, Philip got the opportunity to be un-famous for 15 minutes.

Baccara was kind enough to slip some snapshots to me, a few days afterward, so I went to the Cordova sandbox, and rezzed them onto a few insta-billboards, to take a look. (I especially like the one with the Marilyn Monroe-esque avatar peeking out from among the army of Andys. Avatar as artistic allusion, that.) The billboards sort of became an art display in themselves, and this being Cordova, a couple aliens eventually showed up, to investigate the fuss. So by the time it got to me, it was an exhibit for an event in a virtual world that was inspired by the work of an artist known for recreating artificial objects and turning them into an art exhibit.

Andy, I think, would have been pleased.

Jack, I'm sure that everyone turned that off on their respective machines, in the spirit of the event. On their honor, of course.
