VERSE: Immersive NFT Exhibit Augmented Reality NFT Exhibition to Open in San Francisco in February

VERSE: Immersive NFT Exhibit Augmented Reality NFT Exhibition to Open in San Francisco in February

Using the Microsoft HoloLens 2 headset, attendees will visualize the metaverse as the gallery and striking augmented reality art within it come to life alongside their fellow guests. Guests can expect to see the heaviest hitters in the space including pieces from Bored Ape Yacht Club, Scott Musgrove, BlockBar and more. As an accessible space, Verse will also be partnering with a “good for humanity” collective in each curation, leading with AvaTree, a dynamically growing NFT collection that sequesters carbon IRL.

VERSE is powered by Enklu and presented by Non Plus Ultra in association with Fever, with the aim to provide NFT creators and owners with a new community and space to engage with art in a way that is accessible to all. The experience in San Francisco is only the first stop of the VERSE tour, with the exhibit launching in Denver in March.

“We have developed VERSE in a vision of an inclusionary NFT Metaverse with a real-world art experience that connects creators and owners in a physical setting they are familiar with.” says Ray Kallmeyer, the CEO of Enklu and NFT artist.

Located in the heart of downtown and carefully renovated to maintain its rich history, the San Francisco Mint is one of the Bay Area’s most prestigious and historic event venues. Also affectionately known as The Granite Lady, it opened in 1874 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961. VERSE will take place in the stunning old vaults used to store gold supplies.

“The San Francisco Mint once held $300 million worth of gold, which was equal to one third of the entire United States gold reserves. This gold was essential to backing up the US currency,” explains Jordan Langer, the CEO of Non Plus Ultra. “There is a beautiful irony in presenting this cryptoart exhibit in the now empty vaults of the Granite Lady.”

Doors open for VERSE: Immersive NFT Exhibit on February 3, 2022. Ticket sales are selling quickly with some dates already sold out. Tickets can be purchased here starting at $15. All ages are welcome.

To ensure the safety of attendees at each event, strict COVID-19 safety measures will be in place throughout the experience. All local health guidelines and restrictions will also be strictly upheld.
