If you haven't seen Warhol's Screen Tests at SAM yet, take today or tomorrow as the opportunity because there are two talks worth going to in the evenings at 7 and you can see the art first, step out for a drink, then come back.
Talks are scholar Richard Meyer tonight and performance artist Kalup Linzy tomorrow. Meyer's talk will be called A Reason to Get Up in the Morning, which sounds right-good, but if you need to choose, go with the artist. I just met him in a quick presentation he did for the staff at SAM that I snuck into, and I can't wait for his performance.
Here's a YouTube clip from one of Linzy's classics, a reinterpretation (with lipsyncing) of a song that was banned in the 1930s, Lollypop.
