Today at 6pm sharp in the NW corner of Union Square, Artist and D.C. boy Rob Pruitt, with support of the Public Art Fund will unveil The Andy Monument.
“The Andy Monument, by Rob Pruitt, is a figurative sculpture of Andy Warhol in the neo-classical style. Situated in Union Squared Park, it stands across from the building where Andy Warhol moved his Factory to in 1968. Just around the corner from Max’s Kansas City, this was the location where Valerie Salonas’ assassination attempt occurred and where Interview magazine was launched. The statue sits on a classical style pediment, which instead of being carved from marble, is cast in concrete. The figure, at 7 feet tall, is slightly larger then life and chrome-plated, to reflect the changing world around it.”
Below is a letter from Rob Pruitt stating the intent and reasoning behind the sculpture:
