Another good reason
for a trip to Pittsburgh: From ABC News: "In the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Andy Warhol took images of a smiling first lady in a pillbox hat and contrasted them on blue, gold and gray panels to images of her as a stoic widow.
To Warhol, Jacqueline Kennedy's image captured the sorrow of a nation. He honored her with hundreds of silkscreen portraits akin to holy cards.

Warhol's Jackie portraits will be displayed as part of the museum's newest exhibit titled "November 22, 1963: Image, Memory, Myth," which opens Saturday on the 40th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination. The show, featuring images of John F. Kennedy Jr. saluting his father's casket and the grainy stills of a home movie shot by Abraham Zapruder capturing the entire assassination, was done in collaboration with The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas."
