It details the hijacking of TWA Flight 355, her correspondence with the wife of the hijacker, Murray’s appeal for the woman’s release from prison, and the final face-to-face meeting where the truth of who the hijacker was and what she wanted ripped away her ability to trust.

The Whitney describes Warhol as “ever-present and instantly recognizable with his carefully cultivated persona, his willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, and his understanding of the growing power of images in contemporary life. He didn't slow down after an assassination attempt in 1968, but entered into a period of intense experimentation. The show illuminates his beginnings as a commercial illustrator in the 1950s, his iconic Pop masterpieces of the early 1960s, his experimental work in film in the 60s and 70s, and later work.” Registration required.
