Installation artist Ed Edward Ralph Kienholz dies of a heart attack at the age of 67 in Hope, Idaho, United States.


Kienholz was buried in a Kienholz installation: "His corpulent, embalmed body was wedged into the front seat of a brown 1940 Packard coupe. There was a dollar and a deck of cards in his pocket, a bottle of 1931 Chianti beside him and the ashes of his dog Smash in the back. He was set for the afterlife. To the whine of bagpipes, the Packard, steered by his widow Nancy Reddin Kienholz, rolled like a funeral barge into the big hole."
