The Factory had three separate locations from its inception in 1962 to its closure in 1984, moved finally to 22 E. 33rd St. The studio was the creative powerhouse in which Warhol propelled Pop art into the Silver Era, mass producing prints, lithographs, films, and various other art forms under Warhol's direction. The workers in the Factory dubbed the Warhol Superstars included a wide swathe of personages: adult film actors, socialites, musicians, drag queens, and drug addicts all contributed to the production. Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, and Truman Capote were frequent guests of The Factory while Allen Ginsberg and Salvador Dali would make occasional appearances.
