Cozomo de' Medici Collection Makes History
The Cozomo de' Medici Collection announced a donation of 22 NFTs directly to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
❗Why It Matters
The donation comes on the heels of a slow, but building trend of traditional museums and galleries owning and/or displaying digital art in their collections. "These works will now sit in one of the greatest art collections in human history, alongside physical works defining the last 6,000 years of artistic expression. Including works by Rembrandt, Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Cassatt, Andy Warhol, Monet, and Georgia O'Keeffe," said Cozomo.
The 22 NFTs, which include a CryptoPunk and a Ringer, span three years of creation from 13 different artists, including: Justin Aversano, Dmitri Cherniak, Claire Silver, and more.
