More than 150 photographs shot by Andy Warhol are making their home at a college in Salem, Virginia. Roanoake College is among 183 institutions of higher learning to receive works by the pop artist, who died in 1987.

The Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program is donating more than 28,000 works to colleges and universities nationwide.

Roanoke College is receiving 103 Polaroid photographs, and 51 black-and-white photographs. They include pictures of President Jimmy Carter, William Burroughs, Cheryl Tiegs, Truman Capote, Liza Minnelli and Martha Graham.

The college says some photos will be on display this fall, and a larger exhibit is in the works, once the photographs are documented and framed.
