A massive monument honoring Andy Warhol – the late, great Father of Pop Art — will be unveiled today at a new pedestrian plaza in Union Square.

The nearly 10-foot-tall statue by visual artist Rob Pruitt will set up outside a building at Broadway and 17th Street that housed the final rendition of Warhol’s legendary “Factory” from 1973 to 1984.
