Warhol Women Opening Tonight! . Debbie Harry first saw Andy Warhol in 1965 at an event at Carnegie Hall, where she had opened for the band Warhol managed, The Velvet Underground. Speaking with Cheyenne Westphal in 2011, Harry retained a vivid memory of the first time she saw the artist, saying he, “looked like he came from 30 years in the future and the crowd just parted.” The two later became acquainted through a chance run-in on Broadway and 13th Street, and Harry noted that after they “chatted about everything,” invitations for her to visit the Factory followed. . Asked how it felt to sit for Warhol, Harry remembered the artist’s Polaroid camera, and noted how his soft-spoken manner made for a relaxed experience. In addition to being the subject of one of the artist’s most iconic portraits, Harry, by then a famous musician, became a regular guest on his television show WarholTV, cementing her association with Warhol’s circle. . #LevyGorvy #WarholWomen #AndyWarhol #DebbieHarry .
