Iconic pop artist Andy Warhol was the target of a bizarre assassination attempt at the height of his fame in 1968, by a woman desperate to become part of his inner circle. Warhol rose to fame as a commercial illustrator in New York City after leaving his childhood home in Pittsburgh. He would go on to become a trailblazer – the most important and influential artist in New York, creating new forms of art, controversial films, and totally transforming our entire idea of celebrity. But his near fatal shooting changed his life forever. We’ll visit the locations that made Andy an icon – the restaurant where he sold his first original pieces of art, the Upper East Side townhouse where he created some of his most important art (and also lived with his mother!), the former site of a legendary nightclub where he held court with his Superstars and The Velvet Underground, and 33 Union Square, Andy Warhol’s second Factory, the site of the attempt on his life in 1968.
