    The Paley Center celebrates the 81st birthday of Andy Warhol with the premiere screening of an upcoming VH1 Rock Doc that looks at the revolutionary work that the pop auteur produced in the mid-'60s. The film shows how Warhol and his Factory provided a social arena for collaborative experimentation that spanned the worlds of poetry, fashion, film, photography, art, music, and the drug culture. Factory survivors describe how Warhol’s speed freaks, drag queens, musicians, superstars, and avant-garde artists helped shape a scene unique in American cultural history. Nowhere has Warhol’s interactions with Bob Dylan been brought to life so vividly. After the screening, Warhol intimates will discuss the legacy of the artist who anticipated our celebrity culture and reality television. Andy Warhol premieres on VH1 on Friday, Aug/ 14, at 8 p.m. ET, as part of its five-part series "Lords of the Revolution."

    To say I'm jealous of anyone attending is an understatement!
