COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Portraits by famed pop artist Andy Warhol are coming to the Columbia Museum of Art this summer.

The State newspaper in Columbia (http://bit.ly/1IW3Diw ) reports that "From Marilyn to Mao: Andy Warhol's Famous Faces" is scheduled to run from June 12 through Sept. 13.

The exhibition features 45 of the artist's most famous portraits including Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein and Theodore Roosevelt.

Most of the pieces are on loan from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

Portraits of Mao Zedong will stay for good after being donated to the Columbia Museum of Art as part of an anonymous gift.
