MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A traveling collection of Andy Warhol’s works goes on sale Saturday in Minneapolis.

The “Andy Warhol in Minneapolis” exhibition runs through March 23 at Aria in the downtown warehouse district. It’s the first U.S.-based private sales exhibition for “Andy Warhol at Christie’s.” The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is selling its collection of the late pop artist’s works through the auction house to raise money for its endowment.

More than 50 paintings, photographs, prints and works on paper will be available to the public during the week-long selling exhibition. Included is a selection of works originally featured at Warhol’s 1975 show in Minneapolis.

Highlights include self-portraits of Warhol and a screen print of Marilyn Monroe.

Admission to the exhibition is free and open to the public.
