Andy Warhol returns to his old factory.
A life-size statue of the pop culture icon is now on display outside what used to be Warhol's studio in Union Square.
The nearly 10-foot high chrome monument is standing tall at the pedestrian plaza at Broadway and West 17th Street, outside what used to be Warhol's "Factory" studio during the 1970s and early 1980s.
The artist is in good company – statues of Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington also dot the park.
Warhol's statue will remain there until October.
The work was commissioned by the Public Art Fund.
