More than than 50 paintings, photos and other works that reflect the influence Minneapolis had on late iconic artist Andy Warhol are coming to Twin Cities for a private sales exhibit, the Pioneer Press reports.

Dubbed "Andy Warhol at Christie's," the private sales exhibit, which being co-presented by Aria at the Jeune Lune in Minneapolis and Christie's Auction House, is the first of its kind in the U.S., organizers said.

Some of the works that will be featured are pieces that Warhol showed in Minneapolis in 1957 and 1974.

"We are pleased to begin the private sales tour of 'Andy Warhol at Christie's' in Minneapolis, a city with deep ties to the creative community, a strong base of contemporary arts institutions and a great tradition of philanthropy," said Doug Woodham, president of Christie’s Americas, in a press release.

The event is set to take place March 16-23. Proceeds will go to benefit the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Warhol, who was known for legendary screen prints of such stars as Marilyn Monroe, as well as objects like Campbell's Soup cans, died in 1987 at age 58.
