      B) This Bulgarian-born artist started out by displaying painted or wrapped cans and bottles. Gradually, the theme of wrapping on a monumental scale became his main focus, as in his 1972 draping of Rifle Gap, Colorado, 1983's "Surrounded Islands" in Biscayne Bay, Florida, and 1985's draping of Paris' Pont Neuf bridge in beige cloth.

(ANS: Christo Javacheff (first name only acceptable))

       C) Receiving sudden fame in 1962 as a result of his paintings of Coca-Cola bottles and Campbell's soup cans, he began to mass-produce purposely banal images of consumer goods and pop icons, most famously Marilyn Monroe. In 1968, he was shot and nearly killed by one of his hangers-on, an event immortalized in a relatively recent film -- the title of which, if we were to tell you, would make this a 1-point question.

  (ANS: Andy Warhol)
