Scotland: Andy Warhol goes to Parliament with 'Pop, Power and Politics'
For the first time, American pop artist Andy Warhol's works will be shown in a parliamentary building in a show titled "Pop, Power and Politics." Scottish Parliament members and visitors will have a chance to ponder Warhol-style political commentary during the free month-long exhibition that opened Saturday at the complex in Edinburgh. More than 40 items -- including portraits of Andrew Carnegie, Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon -- will be on display through Nov. 3. Here are some of the Warhol works you can see at the Parliament complex whose remarkable modern architecture is worth a visit too.
