Andy gets a big head in Brooklyn

If we weren't already looking forward to the Brooklyn Museum’s gala party next week, we certainly are now that we’ve learned a giant 20-foot piñata shaped like Andy Warhol’s head is part of the festivities. The dessert-dispensing likeness is among the treats lined up by Jennifer Rubell for the interactive “dining experience” installation she has organised for the gala, which also includes “drinking paintings and suspended melting cheese heads”. (Yum?) As per tradition, guests will be invited to try their strength against the papier-mâché effigy, but no word yet if there is a 15-minute time limit. The monumental noggin is already hanging in the museum’s Rubin Pavilion, so we might just sneak over and look for any weak spots.
