Andy Warhol was one pop personality whose fame lasted much longer than the allotted 15 minutes. Come see if it should have at the Baltimore Film Forum's series of Warhol movies taking place throughout this month at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The series coincides with the opening of the BMA's new wing for modern art, which includes acquisitions of works by late artist/filmmaker. The films to be shown are "My Hustler," "Bike Boy" and "The Chelsea Girls." All three are typical Warhol -- a little outlandish, somewhat risque, devilishly enjoyable.
Warhol Film Series, Baltimore Museum of Art. "My Hustler," 8 p.m. Oct. 7. "Bike Boy," 8 p.m. Oct. 14. "The Chelsea Girls," 7 p.m. Oct. 15. Admission is $5, $4 for members, seniors and students. Call (410) 889-1993.
If you have an event for this calendar, please send typed information and a photograph (if possible) five weeks in advance to Here & There, Sun Magazine, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, Md. 21278.
