Happy Hour with an NFT Twist
Date June 29, 2021 / Tuesday / 5:30pm - 8:00pm
Venue TheArsenale 69 NE 41st Street Miami Florida
Serial entrepreneur and technologist, Marc Billings, will help EO South Florida members start to understand more about the dynamic and evolving world of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Housed in the heart of Miami’s Design District at TheArsenale, Marc’s newest venture, Blackdove just launched the first ever NFT art gallery in Miami. It is in this unique setting that guests can look forward to a truly unparalleled digital art experience, with a refreshed weekly rotation of NFT art, spotlighting different highly acclaimed and up-and-coming local Miami and global artists. All pieces will be exhibited on Blackdove Digital Canvas displays and will be available to purchase on-site via cryptocurrency.
“Digital Art is the principal medium of this generation's top artists and defines the intersection of experience and technology,” says Marc Billings. “We have barely touched the surface of the possibilities and impact on society of this shift.”
This event will feature artists like Frederick D. Barnes in order to help us understand this medium and opportunity from the artist’s perspective. Federick is based in the Tampa area and creates surreal motion art – having worked with the likes of Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, Vouge Magazine, the Marriott hotel chain and many others.
What is an NFT? NFT’s are unique types of cryptographic tokens that signify digital stamps of authenticity and serve as original ownership signatures for any work of digital art. An inventively disruptive force in today’s art market landscape, NFT’s represent a huge opportunity for digital artists by providing immutable provenance for collectors.
What is NFT Artwork? NFT artwork is limited edition digital art sold using blockchain technology and delivered electronically to displays for viewing. While digital art can include still imagery, Blackdove specializes in the more premium moving image artwork.
