Warhol expo cancelled

roof hole repair

An exhibition of Andy Warhol prints in the only museum in Europe dedicated to the American pop art icon has been cancelled due to a hole in the roof, its chief curator said yesterday.

"Yes, there is a hole in the roof ... who would let pieces worth millions displayed in a leaky museum?" Michal Bycko said of the museum located in the eastern Slovak town of Medzilaborce.

The museum, which opened in 1991 with support from Warhol's brother John and the Andy Warhol Foundation in New York, was to have opened the biggest exhibition in its history in early August, with about 60 prints loaned by five private collectors.
