The Andy Warhol Museum is launching a live video feed from the pop artist's Pittsburgh gravesite to honor his 85th birthday.

The museum says the partnership with the EarthCam webcam network will go live Monday at midnight. The project is titled "Figment" because of a Warhol quote in which he said he'd like his tombstone to be blank or just say the word figment.

The Warhol museum says hundreds of people visit the artist's grave every year and some leave pop culture items featured in his artworks, such as Campbell's Soup cans.

EarthCam says it also will have a live webcam from the church where Warhol was baptized and people will be able to send flowers and watch as they're delivered to the grave.

Warhol died in 1987. His birthday is Tuesday.
