Art Blocks Announces Charity Auctions for Alzheimers Research

Art Blocks is collaborating with The Giving Block and members of Right Click Save to launch, "reGEN," a special charitable auction to benefit The Cure Alzheimers Fund, featuring generative artists.

The Deets

  • Initiative for Alzheimer’s research fundraising.
  • More than $500k previously raised by guest curators for degenerative diseases.
  • Auctions feature 200 artworks from five eminent artists.
  • Artists pledge 50-100% of proceeds to the cause.

The Bulk

reGEN, powered by Art Blocks, will be driven by the curation of Alex Estorick and Foteini Valeonti. The collaboration introduces a week-long charity initiative, aiming to leverage the beauty of generative art to garner funds for the The Cure Alzheimers Fund.

Having previously raised more than half a million dollars for combating degenerative diseases, the guest curators are channeling their energy towards Alzheimer's this time. Over the week, every day, 200 unique art pieces crafted by world-renowned artists will be up for auction. Notable names in the artist lineup include @mwiederrecht, @5putniko, @_NatSarkissian, @flight404, and @msoriaro.

Each auction will follow the Dutch auction format, commencing at 1:00 p.m. ET and experiencing a gradual decrease in the artwork's price over a span of 30 minutes. To bolster the charitable essence of the initiative, each artist has committed to donating a generous 50-100% of their auction proceeds directly to the Cure Alzheimers Fund.
