Katy Perry & Madonna to Collaborate on New Art Project
By Shannon Carlin
The Material Girl is teaming up with the California Gurl for a new charitable art project.
Yesterday (Jan. 8), Katy Perry took to Twitter to announce the collaboration with Madonna as part of the Art for Freedom campaign, a worldwide public art project that Madonna and designer Steven Klein launched last year, which asks people all over the world to send in videos, photos and poetry answering the question “What does freedom mean to you?”
According to a press release, Perry will serve as a guest curator throughout the month of January, helping Madonna go through daily submissions on the project’s website. Each day throughout the month, Perry will choose one artist to spotlight on the site that she feels “demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights.”

At the end of the month, Perry will help Madonna select one artist, who in their opinion best expresses what freedom means and award them with a $10,000 grant for the nonprofit organization of his or her choice. Last month, David Blaine served as guest curator.
