NFT marketplace Mint Gold Dust and Illustrative Space worked with non-profit Austin Muralist Collective HOPE Campaign to engage Texas artists to create 10 unique murals that were displayed throughout the SXSW convention center. The organizations also included geo-dropped digital artworks throughout Austin. The digital versions of select murals from the collaboration are available NOW on Mint Gold Dust’s marketplace following their SXSW debut. The NFT collection acts as an archive of the ingenious activation and gives the participating artists an opportunity to earn royalties for their work.
