Radar: Andy Warhol Family Day Aug. 2 at St. Petersburg's Museum of Fine Arts

Many of us remember iconic pop culture artist Andy Warhol for his classic Campbell's Soup painting and colorful silk screen prints of Marilyn Monroe. In honor of what would have been Warhol’s 81st birthday, his nephew James Warhola joins fans and art appreciators alike at Andy Warhol Family Day for arty activities and a discussion on the exhibit Andy Warhol Portfolios: Life and Legends, which ends on August 16. Warhola will sign copies of both his children books, Uncle Andy’s and Uncle Andy’s Cats. In his vibrantly and imaginatively illustrated books, the author fondly recalls visits to his eccentric uncle’s New York townhouse. Throughout the afternoon, children and adults can channel the spirit of Warhol by creating silk screens, stencil images and 3-D sculptures. There will also be a special performance by Mark “the Balloon Guy” Byrne, who is bound to delight families with his fanciful balloon sculptures and hats. Other special treats include a movie on Warhol, a Warhol inspired café menu and 10 percent off all Warhol merchandise.
