As one of the artists commissioned to make work for the 1964 World’s Fair, Andy Warhol, always the provocateur, plastered a sizable portion of the New York State Pavilion’s facade with enlarged mugshots of the city’s most wanted criminals from two years prior. The checkerboard of front and profile views was quickly painted over by the Fair’s more prudent officials, but months later, the wily Pop artist reproduced the silkscreens. Nine of them are now on view, just a five-minute walk from the scene of the scandal.
