Snowfro's Squiggles: The Auction
VerticalCrypto Art and Right Click Save are delighted to announce “Snowfro’s Squiggles: The Auction” in collaboration with The ALS Association and The Giving Block.
Chromie Squiggles represent the genesis project of the artist and founder of Art Blocks, Erick Calderon (aka Snowfro). First minted on the platform in November 2020, Squiggles have since become an icon of contemporary generative art and Snowfro’s personal signature as an artist and developer. However, since their initial release, the minting of Chromie Squiggles has been paused, with Snowfro highly selective about the occasions on which unminted Squiggles are to be released.
As part of our mission to support generative artists in fighting degenerative diseases, VerticalCrypto Art and Right Click Save are proud to announce the auction of ten unminted Chromie Squiggles in partnership with The ALS Association and The Giving Block, with proceeds from the sale going toward finding a cure for the degenerative disease, ALS.
“Snowfro’s Squiggles: The Auction” will commence on Tuesday 23 May at 5pm GMT | 12pm EST and last for 24 hours, concluding on Wednesday 24 May. The format will be a ranked auction with the highest ten bidders winning the ten unminted Squiggles.
The auction will take place online at gallery.verticalcrypto.art
