The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh.

Sorry. I couldn't quite stop myself from making that reference.

In one of my favorite curatorial moves of the year, The Warhol replaced the purple cow wallpaper that usually graces this space with this fish design to go with Ron Mueck's Man in a Boat.

It's funny. I totally grooved to the Mueck when it was at the Brooklyn Museum last year. The Warhol's decision to show the pieces throuhout the museum instead of placing them in one central location diluted the show's power. Oddly, some of the larger works didn't feel as grand or as intimate in the smaller rooms of The Warhol. I would have expected the opposite to be true, but not so much.
