(AP Photo/Richard Drew, File) PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Andy Warhol Museum has launched a live video feed from the pop artist’s gravesite to honor his 85th birthday. The project, a partnership with the EarthCam webcam network, went live Monday at midnight. Museum director Eric Shiner said the project is titled “Figment” because of a Warhol quote in which the artist said: “I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say, ‘Figment.’”
