Warhol filmed the Empire State Building for 6 hours overnight in 1964 to create his film Empire. One still image from the film was used to create a 12’ high two panel silkscreened mural where the panels interlock at the same height allowing the designer to choose where the Empire State Building would land in the room. Or just have the Empire State Building repeat serially, which might have been what Andy would have done. The detail image shows two of the City panels with one Empire panel in the middle.
