Andy Warhol Statute Afforded More Than Union Square’s Allotted 15 Minutes Of Fame

THE SHOT — So, uh, this thing is now in New York City’s Union Square. Designed by sculptor Rob Pruitt, the Andy Warhol monument is, fittingly, in hanging out in the epicenter of art and commerce (though mostly commerce). Also, it’s right by his old Factor, where he made all those art things and survived a shooting in 1968. In the statue Andy holds a Bloomingdale’s bag, which he liked to do with his little Interview magazine inside. The locals ask that you please do not take pictures of yourself simulating oral sex on Mr. Warhol.
