Celebrate the notorious filmmaker's big 6-3 by checking out his sculpture exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery . You'll find a sculpture of Ike and Tina Turner, a jar of La Mer face cream and a giant roach motel. There are also some photographs in the exhibit, so go over to the Super Touch Art website and check it out .
