Benefitting abortion funds, Sotheby’s will auction Halsey’s original paintings from the ‘Love and Power’ tour

Halsey drew all the five artworks live while singing during her tour, within the confines of a 3-minute song

July 14, 2022: Reigning as one of the most renowned artists of recent times, Halsey has amassed over 31 billion combined global streams, including more than 12.5 billion U.S. streams, and sold nearly 17 million adjusted album units worldwide. Along with her mesmerising vocals, the American singer uses her skills and platform to highlight important causes such as disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. Supporting one such reason, Sotheby’s Contemporary Discoveries auction will include five works by Halsey. 

Created on stage while on her Love and Power Tour, within the confines of a 3-minute song, the original paintings were executed by Halsey live each night as she performed for thousands of fans.

Fans and art collectors can bid until July 19 on the five paintings from Halsey's shows on May 21 in Gulf Shores, Alabama; May 24 in Nashville, Tennessee; May 27 in Detroit, Michigan; June 1 in Boston, Massachusetts; and June 18 in Portland, Oregon. Each of the five paintings is on offer for an estimated $5,000-7,000. With a highly sensitive American debate underway on abortion rights, proceeds from the auction of the works will benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds. The paintings are now on view at Sotheby’s New York in a free, public exhibition until July 19.
 
Sotheby’s Discoveries sales series combines diverse artworks of various media, regions and eras. Comprised of paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures, Contemporary Discoveries focuses on artwork from the 1960s to today.
