Exhibit recreates Warhol's 1964 World's Fair mural

This April 1964 photo provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. shows a 20x20 foot mural depicting mug shots of the NYPD’s 13 most-wanted criminals by Andy Warhol, mounted on the curved facade of the New York State Pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair in the Queens borough of New York. The fair celebrated “The World of Tomorrow,” but Warhol may have been ahead of his time. His monumental piece commissioned specifically for the fair was deemed too edgy for the family-friendly event and painted over just before opening day. Now, 50 years later, the work is the focus of a museum exhibition being staged on the very fairgrounds where the pop-art provocateur was infamously censored.
