Fifteen minutes is an overestimation in the age of social media. But in honor of Brillo’s 100th anniversary, there’s the new DIY POP app from The Andy Warhol Museum. The app helps fellow followers of Warhol become a part of the Factory by creating a virtual silkscreen of your favorite photos – be it celeb, loved one or friend.

Here’s how it works: Just upload an image and then use the free app to crop, expose, underpaint and share on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The app also takes fans on a behind-the-scenes tour of Warhol’s vast collection of work – everything from those famous Brillo boxes and silver clouds to the Campbell’s Soup Can and celebrity icon paintings (hello, Jackie O!).

There’s also a cool layer that turns your phone into a veritable augmented reality viewer, allowing you to view locations in Pittsburgh and New York City that were most influential in the artist’s life.
