On Friday, March 6th Ameoba Music and the East Bay Express are turning an Emeryville warehouse into a tribute to Andy Warhol and his 1960’s New York City art studio The Factory as part of the Third Annual Amoeba Art Show Factory Party.
This First Friday spectacular art, music, and film event celebrates the works of regional artists and pays tribute to Andy Warhol and his Factory, the original New York City studio from 1962 to 1968. The Factory Party takes place in a massive warehouse space divided into nine distinct rooms where guests are immersed in a wide range of art mediums, as well as live art, musical performances and theatrical art forms. A portion of this event features a re-creation of Andy Warhol’s Factory, and is brought you by the East Bay Express. Visitors entering the Factory will see live production of art in the style and process performed by Andy Warhol, including silk screening, filming, screen testing, and painting. Velvet Underground cover bands will perform, recreating sounds at the Factory. Guests are encouraged to dress in their 1960’s best and are welcome to lounge in the Factory with “Warhol” and his “Super Stars”.
