This fall, the National Gallery of Art is hosting its first one-man Warhol show, "Warhol: Headlines."

It's been more than twenty years since the death of pop artist Andy Warhol, but his legacy is still up for debate. He's the topic of several exhibitions in D.C. this fall, including the National Gallery of Art's first one-man Warhol show, "Headlines." NPR's Susan Stamberg takes us inside the exhibit, which features a series of paintings he made of Page One tabloid headlines.
