Andy Warhol's tan and grainy portrait of everyone's favorite Terminator/governor — on display with 99 other Warhol Polaroids at the uptown McCaffrey Fine Art gallery through February 23 — captures just the kind of fame Warhol promised his bevy of "superstars": fleeting and shirtless. Though, in all fairness, Schwarzenegger's has extended far beyond the fifteen-minute mark. Warhol's probably spinning in his grave. —Rachel Wolff
