Warhol's studio, known as "The Factory," was a famous gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, rock stars, transvestites, writers, artists, Bohemian street people, junkies, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy patrons. The Factory was a place where society's outcasts could mingle with the rich and famous, where legendary parties set trends and influenced popular culture, and where Warhol would create works which are now valued in the millions.
