Each stamp in the set shows a photograph of a different river segment that has been designated within the Wild and Scenic Rivers System.

The 10-stamp set honoring abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly will be issued May 31 in Spencertown, N.Y., where Kelly lived and worked up until his death in 2015.

The Ellsworth Kelly stamps will be issued in a pane of 20.

A commemorative forever stamp marking the 75th anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Missouri (BB-63) will be issued June 11 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
