The Andy Monument @ Union Square

A little larger than life-size, and a little smoother (the hair), and perhaps prettier, The Andy Monument by Rob Pruitt is at the north end of Union Square until October. He’s carrying a Bloomingdale’s shopping bag, as he often did in real life. 33 Union Square West and 860 Broadway, located nearby, were locations of his Factory. Significantly, the Warhol sculpture is called a monument, making us think of other memorials to important Americans, such as George Washington.
