For the remaining weeks of the summer and into September, you can see the exhibit “Andy Warhol: The Last Decade” at the Brooklyn Museum. 

Even now, nearly 25 years after his death, Warhol’s image is rarely out of the public eye.  And as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, that was the artist’s lifelong dream.  Here is the next Fishko Files...

 

 

"I think Shirley Temple was Andy's first star. He dreamt himself out of his extremely poverty-struck existence in Pittsburgh as a child via the movies. Shirley Temple was the same age as he was. The same size as he was, and had a similar-enough build that  he actually then started copying some of her gestures, which turn up later in famous photographs of him taken in the 60s.  -Victor Bockris
