Andy Warhol’s Grave
I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, and everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. 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.”
Warhol’s grave site is viewable 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the collaborative project between The Warhol and EarthCam that we call Figment.
Warhol’s funeral took place on February 27, 1987, at Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church in Pittsburgh. Warhol is buried alongside his parents, Julia and Andrej Warhola, at St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cemetery. It is owned and operated by St. John the Baptist Church in Pittsburgh, a sister parish of St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church, Warhol’s childhood church. EarthCam also has a live webcam inside this church.
