Farrah Fawcett, sex symbol and actress who died yesterday of cancer at age 62, was an art major at UT, Austin and continued sculpting throughout her life: a collaboration with Keith Edmier in which the two artist made life-sized nude statues of each other showed in 2000 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Andy Warhol Foundation. A brief internet search reveals no evidence that Michael Jackson, pop mega-star, who died yesterday in Los Angeles, was either from Texas, or a visual artist, although he owned a lot of art.
