The museum dedicated to Beeple’s NFT works was born
A visit to Museum B.20, the virtual museum dedicated to the works of the digital artist Beeple
The record-breaking artist Beeple has officially entered the history of art and from January 2021 it is possible to visit his works within a widespread museum complex consisting of three virtual buildings distributed on three decentralized platforms.
The project was created by Metapurse the largest NFT fund in the world, founded by Metakovan, the collector who bought the work Everydays: The First 5,000 Days by digital artist Beeple, aka Mike Winkelmann, for $ 69 million from Christie’s.
Even prior to this acquisition Metapurse owned a large collection of Beeple’s NFT works which included “Beeple Everydays: The 2020 Collection”, “Urbit Galaxy”, “F1 DeltaTime III”, “First Supper” and the first 20 edition of “Beeple Everydays: The 2020 Collection ”.
Metapurse has commissioned Voxel Architects, a digital designer studio, to build a widespread virtual museum on the Decentraland, CryptoVoxels and Spazio Somnium platforms with the aim of sharing ownership of Beeple’s art collection through the sale of the B20 token.
The B.20 Museum is the first public art project in virtual reality costing over 2.7 million dollars.
The museums can only be visited with an avatar that moves within a digital space, with modern and extremely futuristic architecture.
The collection consists of works worth over 2.2 million dollars: among these we find “The Passion of the Elon” (a giant Elon Musk who is crucified) and “Shrek Too” (which depicts the famous green ogre from DreamWorks Animation) hung on the walls of the rooms like real paintings.
What is striking about this project is:
- An unprecedented visit to the first virtual museum entirely with NFT works.
- the creation of a Community of artists, collectors and professionals interested in knowing, enjoying and investing in the NFT market.
The B20 Beeple Collection is a unique project to share ownership of digital art with a wider community.
Metapurse’s mission is to democratize access to and ownership of highly sought-after works of art and accelerate the “Cultural Renaissance 4.0” that is taking place within the art world.
