Cartography of the mind: A Curated NFT Sale to Benefit MAPS
MAPS is a Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies. The research has been ongoing since 1986. A stacked lineup of artists that have all donated amazing artworks went up for sale from June 21st - June 28th. Many of these artworks have outperformed their estimates, a good sign some would say. Although others would question the market validity of this auction due to the works and sales being donated. I still believe it is awesome to see these artists being promoted at one of the biggest auction houses.
Shoutout to Noah Davis on what I believe was his last auction with Christie's. Noah has been curating major auctions for our fellow digital artists and collections for over a year now. A big advocate for NFTs in the traditional world. Noah is moving on to join Yuga Labs as the Brand Lead for Cryptopunks.
The sale total ended at $1.56M, a great feat for the 27 participants.
