Andy Warhol Statue Unveiled


A 10-foot-tall shiny chrome statue honoring late artist Andy Warhol was unveiled today at a new pedestrian plaza in New York City's Union Square, reports the New York Post.

Visual artist Rob Pruitt was commissioned by the Public Art Fund to design the sculpture, which is set up outside a building at Broadway and 17th Street that housed the final rendition of Warhol's legendary Factory from 1973 to 1984. "Andy Warhol still remains a vital symbol of why so many people come to New York to try and make it big here," Pruitt says.

"Andy Warhol spent much of his time here in Union Square, and so it is fitting that The Andy Monument is our first public art installation to grace the new pedestrian plazas," says Union Square Partnership executive director Jennifer Falk.
