In the mid- to late-20th century, when fame and media attention were rising commodities, a celebrity knew that they "made it" when their portrait was done by the great American pop artist Andy Warhol.

One of the most curious instances of Warhol's fascination with fame was his 1984 silkscreen portrait of a young Wayne Gretzky.

So where did these two great ones meet and how? It's a significant instance of American and Canadian popular culture meeting face-to-face.
