WASHINGTON (AP) _ Pop artist Andy Warhol will be remembered on a U.S. postage stamp next month.

Famed for his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and paintings of Campbell's soup cans, Warhol's career also included ventures in design, photography, film, television, writing and publishing.

The commemorative stamp will be issued at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh on Aug. 9. It will be available across the country the following day.

Warhol, who died Feb. 22, 1987, in New York City, has remained famous far longer than the 15 minutes he once predicted for everyone.

The 37-cent stamp features his 1964 self-portrait, which is now in the collection of the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, where he was born
