I’m a huge fan of pop art icon Andy Warhol. Besides the fact that he’s from my hometown of Pittsburgh, Warhol was a groundbreaking multimedia artist who pushed boundaries and got people talking. (If, for whatever reason, you’re ever compelled to present me with a gift of some sort, anything Warhol-related is a great idea.)

Finding his grave, though, was a difficult challenge. It took a couple weeks of searching to actually find it, because it’s in a small, unlabeled cemetery outside Pittsburgh. For those who would like to stop by, it’s in Bethel Park at Connor and Library Roads, up on the hill nearby.

What makes Warhol’s grave a quirky attraction? How about all the Campbell’s soup cans admirers have left as a token of their appreciation? Or the bags of art supplies and other trinkets? For fans of Warhol, it’s worth a visit.
