AUSTIN, Texas - Stunning shapes and colors made from the world's most iconic music…fans can bid on unique art autographed by world-famous musicians at an exhibit in Austin this month.
Soundwaves Art Foundation is set up at the W with its art pieces of sound waves from songs of iconic musicians that are then autographed. The money raised goes to charity.
The foundation says it has donated over $6 million by working with over 600 musicians, including Outkast, Elton John, Coldplay, Dolly Parton, Red Hot Chili Peppers, A Tribe Called Quest, and Celine Dion and selling works to music fans in 87 countries.
The Soundmakers auction hosted by W Hotels and the Austin City Limits Music Festival features some of the foundation's best-selling artworks, including a print from "Jolene" autographed by Dolly Parton and one from "Running Up That Hill" by Kate Bush, which reached worldwide fame earlier this year after it was featured in the Netflix series "Stranger Things."
