For the first time in the history of the Salvador Dalí Museum, there's a new exhibit that doesn't feature the Catalan surrealist master himself. It's an exhibit all about the next prodigy in art history-- Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol takes credit for once saying, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."

Warhol got more than his 15 minutes of fame and now at the Salvador Dalí Museum, he's getting another four months of fame. The museum is debuting its first exhibit that showcases someone other than the master of melting clock and other unworldly apparitions starting Saturday.

You can view some of the opening ceremonies featuring museum director Hank Hine and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman below:
