Andy and Dali get to stay together a while longer.

One of the best, buzziest shows to hit local museums in many years, the Andy Warhol show at the Dalì was a must-see this spring. 

But if you thought you'd missed it, or wouldn't be able to catch it before its scheduled Apr. 27 closing, never fear.  The Dali announced today that it's extending Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality. until June 1.

As Megan Voeller pointed out in her review of the show in January, the pairing of Dalì with Warhol was a match made in art-history heaven:
Given that the ‘Burg seems to be enjoying a certain 15 minutes of fame, it’s apropos that the Dalí has just opened its first monographic exhibition of an artist who is not Dalí but possesses stature — and perhaps also, outrageousness — on par with the Catalan surrealist, an ambition articulated when the museum expanded into its new building three years ago. In Warhol’s obsessive pop and self-portraiture, there’s apt foil for Dalí’s dreams and megalomania, something viewers can consider over a selection of more than 150 Warhol works including paintings, drawings, photographs, experimental films and television episodes on loan from the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.   
And now you've got a lot more than 15 minutes to see it.
