First NFT museum in Seattle, Washington. Exhibitions include guest NFT artists, collectors, and builders, educating and inspiring the public.
Explore the Future of Art
The Seattle NFT Museum is a physical place where people can come together to explore what it might mean to make art with digital assets like collectibles. The museum features interactive exhibits, educational programming, and a library of books about the future of art. Visitors are encouraged to learn how the technology behind cryptocurrencies works, and how it could change the way we experience art.
World’s first NFT museum in Seattle aims to ‘pull back the curtain’ on blockchain art
The museum, called the Cryptozoic Art Museum, offers visitors an opportunity to see how NFTs work in real life, according to co-founder and CEO Michael Terpin. Visitors can purchase tickets to view a live performance of a virtual reality experience featuring NFT artwork, and even take part in a workshop where they learn how to make their own NFTs.
Cryptozoic Art Museum is the first of what it hopes will become many such museums around the globe. Other locations include London, New York City, Tokyo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sydney.
NFTs Will Get a Dedicated Physical Museum in Seattle Next Month
Shanti Escalante-de Mattei is the founder of the Seattle NFT Museum. She says she saw a gap in the market for a place where people could go to see NFT artworks in person. “I thought we needed a space that was dedicated to NFTs,” she told TechCrunch. “There are lots of places online where you can buy things, but I wanted to bring the art into my life.”
Escalante-de Matteisaid that she hopes to show visitors how NFTs work, and why they’re different from traditional works of art. “People don’t understand what NFTs are,” she said. “They think they’re magic. They think they’re some sort of technology that allows us to interact with digital objects. But really, it’s about creating an object that exists outside of the internet. It’s about making a tangible thing that connects to our bodies and our senses.”
Hamilton added that he thinks SNFTM will appeal to anyone interested in NFTs, whether they’re fans of blockchain technology or not. He believes that the museum will help educate people about the medium and make it easier for them to access it. “If you want to learn about blockchain, you can do that,” he said. “But if you want to learn about NFTs, there’s no better way to learn about NFT than to actually look at one.”
Now Showing: September 10th – November 3rd
This week we explore fashion and brand in the world of blockchain technology. We look at how brands are adopting blockchain technology to build trust and transparency into their supply chains. We also take a closer look at the rise of digital collectibles and tokenized assets. Finally, we discuss the future of augmented reality and virtual reality.
We begin our exploration of fashion and brand in the blockchain world with a look at the “pixel and thread” concept. This idea takes the form of a physical object that contains a unique code. When you buy it, you receive a link that allows you to access information about the item. For example, the seller could provide a video explaining the history of the piece. Or perhaps the buyer could find out how long it took to make the garment. In addition to giving buyers insight into the item, sellers can use this method to track items and ensure they are authentic.
Next up, we take a look at the rise of fashion and brand in crypto space. Blockchain technology is being used to develop products like CryptoKitties; a game where people can breed cats and trade them. These digital collectibles are becoming increasingly popular among collectors around the world. They give consumers another way to invest in art and culture while creating demand for original works.
The third segment explores the fabricant, a term coined by Amber Jae Slooten. She describes herself as a designer, artist, entrepreneur, and educator. Her work focuses on exploring concepts such as identity, gender, and self-expression. She uses her expertise in fashion design to bring together different forms of media including film, music, photography, and sculpture. She combines these elements to create wearable pieces that allow people to express themselves without having to rely on words.
In the final segment, we talk about the rise of digital collectables. Digital collectibles are objects that exist solely online. Some examples include Magic cards, Pokemon cards, and even virtual pets. Users can purchase these items and exchange them with friends. Unlike traditional collectable items, there are no limits on what you can do with them. You can wear them, sell them, or even add them to your real life collection.
Finally, we turn our attention to the future of augmented reality (AR). AR is a growing field that overlays computer generated images onto the real world. There are many applications for this technology, ranging from gaming to education. But some experts believe that AR could eventually become as important as smartphones and tablets.
Next Exhibition Opening November 4th
The final exhibition in our current group show, titled “Bit by Bit,” opens on Friday, November 4th at 7pm. We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting an opening reception for the exhibit on Thursday, October 31st from 5–8pm. This event will include food trucks, live music, and drinks.
We hope you enjoy seeing what we’ve been up to over the summer. Please join us for this special evening.
About Seattle NFT Museum Exhibits
Art on display at the Seattle NFT museum lives on the blockchain, thanks to the work of artists, creators, galleries and collectors. The artworks are being offered for sale via the Ethereum network and are stored in smart contracts, meaning there is no middleman involved. This allows us to offer unique pieces that might otherwise never make it into the hands of collectors.
Our mission is to help bring innovative technology to the forefront of the arts scene. By creating a place where people can come together to learn about the latest developments in the creative industries, we hope to inspire others to innovate and collaborate.
We want to give you an inside look at what we’ve been working on since opening our doors in May 2018. Our exhibitions page will be filled with some of the most important works in the history of the NFT movement.
