The M&M collaboration to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood.
On occasion of Planned Parenthood’s annual spring luncheon at New York’s Pierre Hotel musician Miley Cyrus unveiled Thursday a couple of new portraits of herself taken by artist Marilyn Minter, who received the organization’s Woman of Valor award.
The artwork, part of a new project between the two women, which Cyrus dubbed the M&M collaboration, will be sold as a $5,500 limited-edition print. According to Cyrus it will “hopefully make some big bucks for Planned Parenthood.”
“This is a really vital time, I think. I want Planned Parenthood to start coming out of the closet, and I want to take our cues and inspiration from the marriage-equality movement,” said Minter during her speech.
Marilyn Minter already organized a Sotheby’s fundraising auction with Cindy Sherman and Laurie Simmons back in May 2015, raising $2.3 million for Planned Parenthood, which soon plans to offer anti-HIV medicine PrEP and hormone therapy for the transgendered.
The image of Cyrus, provocatively licking a window pane, will be sold on Marc Jacobs t-shirts for both men and women, priced at $50.
The print and the t-shirt are just the first works from the M&M collaboration to be revealed.
“I don’t want to spoil it,” said Minter “We’ve got lots of surprises for ya. They’re coming!”
