With the rise of digital NFT art the Metaverse needed a secure place to show them off. MoNA Gallery provides a blank canvas for anyone to fill with their collection or with their own creativity. If you are a frequent browser of OpenSea you may have even seen a few artists using this to help highlight parts of their NFT within a Metaverse of their own creation. What truly has us excited, aside from being able to finally build our gallery without publishing a Unity project, are some of the features they have on their future roadmap.
AR as an enhancement for artwork is something we wished more museums leaned into, but understand that the investment to create these experiences can be rather high. Enter Artivive, and their platform seems like a natural pairing for home collectors, artists, galleries, and museums. Adding artwork to their catalog isn’t free but does seem like an investment to drive real life visits or the sale of prints. Pretty clever.
