Warhol Statue

There's a statue of the artist Andy Warhol displayed near Union Square by New York's Public Art Fund. The statue by the artist Rob Pruitt is on a pedestrian plaza on Broadway and is close to the location of the studio where Warhol worked. It will be on display until October.

j'avoue que j'ai ete un peu decu de la statue, je la trouve pas tres originale, en comparaison a la folie et l'originalite d'Andy

Quite an impressive statue of Andy. I was never a big fan of his work...but my he is truly famous.

I like the little "Red Heart" touch on Andy. Looks like a great place to sit and enjoy the day!

Interesting that his statue in bare metal, when his paintings were quite colorful.

Curious as to what he'd think of the concept of having a statue in his honor...an atist's work is usually all the monument they ever get. I'd think he'd be pleased, and appreciate the almost colorless rendering as a foil to his work. A cool photo!
