1. The exhibition uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve the ultimate augmented reality experience
Art and technology come together for an unparalleled look at the expanding world of NFTs! Watch the artworks come to life around you with the Microsoft Hololens 2, a powerful mixed-reality headset.
The headset has sensors to track the movement of your head, eyes, and hands, which means that you can interact with and experience the artworks as if they were physical objects. Although you can see other people around you, each guest will experience their own digital reality overlaying the gallery space – much like a silent disco but for holograms. The exhibition also includes spaces to see the artworks through a smartphone or tablet.
2. See holograms and artworks from top-selling artists.
NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, can be sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars in this growing digital marketplace. This exhibition gives you the chance to see dozens of works from the industry’s top-selling artists, such as the famous comical apes from the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Celebrities including Steph Curry and Post Malone have been known to pay six figures for a piece from their highly-coveted collection.
Additional pieces include a psychedelic Avatree whose proceeds go towards carbon sequestration projects, the dynamic shifting Electro Forest by Android Jones, and an ethereal fluttering Morpho butterfly that appears to send ripples through the air… just to name a few.
3. Learn all about the metaverse and the burgeoning world of NFTs
Still wondering exactly what NFTs are and why they’re so important to our ever-changing world? Verse: Art of the Future will help guests to understand the ins and outs of this massively popular art form. In short, NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are digital assets that cannot be replicated, and are bought and sold using cryptocurrency.
The NFT space gives digital creators an opportunity to sell their work in a growing market, allowing artists to profit directly every time their pieces sell or change hands. “Verse” is a nod to the metaverse, a digital three-dimensional world where people can experience and interact with these digital assets much as they would in real life. Denver’s exhibition gives you a peek into the future with helpful narration and signage to teach you about this cutting-edge industry.
4. Explore Denver Pavilions while you’re at it
Verse: Art of the Future is happening at Denver Pavilions, a large open-air mall in downtown Denver. You can make a day of it by shopping at dozens of stores or grabbing a meal at 5280 Burger Bar and Creamery. Many eateries have happy hour deals which you can enjoy on the outdoor Glenarm Patio. In addition to the exhibition, you can beat some noobs at the arcade or sink into a recliner and catch a movie at the newly-remodeled United Artists Theater.
5. Catch the exhibition before it moves to another city
You’ll want to make sure you see Verse: Art of the Future now in Denver before it continues on its tour! The holographic art gallery is now on display only in Denver and San Francisco for its inaugural shows, but it will soon move to other cities including Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle, New York, and Miami. Lucky for us, the exhibition just added new dates all the way through the end of August–so there’s still time to see it for yourself before it’s gone.
Verse: Art of the Future is on display in Denver through the rest of the summer. Come see it now at Denver Pavilions and get to the bottom of why the flourishing world of NFTs is so important to the future of artistic expression.
