In March of this year, The Andy Warhol Museum created a series of events for The Armory Show in New York. The Warhol’s Director, Eric Shiner, was named the curator of The Focus Section of the show and, naturally as Warhol could be called the most American of all artists, Eric focused on “Americana” as a theme. The Warhol offered its limited edition photo portfolio “William John Kennedy: The Warhol Museum Edition” for the first time publicly at the fair as well as mounting the museum’s new interactive display, The Screen Test Machine. The museum also presented “Andy Warhol’s TV” at the non-profit arts space Affirmation Arts, which is near The Armory.
Andy Warhol’s presence was literally everywhere in New York during The Armory, including in a project by the artist Charles Lutz who produced a tribute to Warhol’s Brillo Boxes.
