Ric Burns on Andy Warhol Part II by Mitch E. Perry09/21/06
Tonight on the local PBS affiliate, WEDU, the 2nd 2 hours of documentary filmmaker Ric Burns work on pop artist Andy Warhol continues.
Warhol died in 1987 at the age of 59 in a New York City hospital, following complications from gall bladder surgery.
In his career, Warhol worked as an artist, an avante-garde filmmaker, a writer and a social figure in New York City. Speaking with filmmaker Ric Burns earlier this week, we commented that what powerfully comes across in the documentary is Warholâ€™s towering ambitions (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?from the art he createdâ€?)
Filmmaker Ric Burnsâ€™ film â€œAndy Warhol:A Documentaryâ€? airs tonight at 9PM on WEDU here in the Tampa Bay Area..
