THE HOME of Andy Warhol's museum, the eastern Slovak municipality of Medzilaborce, gained almost €45,000 from the European Union. The grant, given to develop tourism, will start a project to change the town's name to Warhol-City, the TASR news agency reported.

The three-phase project is designed to improve the town's infrastructure and help bring more tourism into a town famous for the Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art. The investments will help reconstruct buildings and bus stations and erect several large-scale billboards, all in the pop-art style of the artist. Money will also be used to build tourist facilities and reconstruct the local swimming pool and amphitheatre.
