The Crypto Renaissance - Exhibition Event Overview [Thank You Steem Community!]

in #utopian-io6 years ago

Thank You @fundition

The Crypto Renaissance exhibition has come to a close! What an amazing ride. We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who supported this show and who came out for the opening, the presentations, tours, workshops, selfies and everything in between. A special thanks to @fundition. Through their collaboration and campaign support we were able to successfully achieve our goal of raising $5,000 USD to cover the rental and insurance costs of the gallery space. In total we raised close to $10,000 USD which covered additional fabrication / installation costs for the exhibition. Thank you @fundition team, we could not have done this without you!

Thank You @utopian-io

Another special thank you to @utopian-io for their open-source entrepreneurship, ideation support, visibility campaigning, and overall generosity. Over the last several weeks we've enjoyed speaking with @jedigeiss, @buckydurddle and @techslut on Utopian's Open Source Radio via the MSP Waves Network. Thank you for spreading the word and creating such a powerful forum for Steemians to support and learn from one another.

^ love those page breakers

Part of the ambition behind the show was to produce informative materials and share everything (publicly) along the way. All of the graphics (posters, infographics, icons, Steem diagrams) are entirely open source and available for all Steemians to use. Our hope is that some of these graphics could get a second or third life either in a new Steem Application or in marketing efforts / meetups elsewhere around the globe!

What's The Crypto Renaissance? - This month-long exhibition showcases the tools and resources built for creative professionals on the Steem blockchain and specifically how @sndbox members have integrated them into their practice and daily work. The exhibition will be open to all visitors for several weeks and serve as a free and public space for New Yorkers and others to learn about the Steem blockchain, the world of crypto, and immediately begin converging their creative work with the Steem ecosystem.

Open Source Graphic Design

Here is a library of icons we used for the exhibition. Feel free to download the PNG files in the table below or you can download the entire folder using the link (includes editable SVG and PNG files).

The Steem DApp Tower Installation

Much of these icons (link above) were part of the DApp Tower - a 9'-0" tall centerpiece of the exhibition. The installation was an educational showcase for Steem applications, highlighting a handful of social applications built on the Steem blockchain.

Boards on the tower included introductory graphics and language designed to help newcomers learn more about Steem. QR codes linking to each featured DApp. We also had a Steepshot Selfie Guestbook - visitors were able to log into Steepshot using a tablet connected to the @exhibition account.

Another fun feature of the Tower included original Steem-inspired artwork made from our amazing followers and through the Crypto Art & Design Challenge that we hosted earlier this summer! Each art piece included the names of each 19 artists.

You guys did an amazing job at hosting this excellent exhibition. The quality of the display hanging and the Steem DApp Tower was fantastic- you did the Steem community proud.

Thank you so much @opheliafu! Your artwork was absolutely stunning and we were thrilled to provide a temporary home for it in Brooklyn.

Looking forward to catching up and collaborating again soon :)

I rejoice with you team @sndbox for being able to meet your target. Thanks to @findition and @utopia-io.

Hey thanks for the kind words @vikasgoel1234 :)

@sndbox I really missed. Problem is I am from india and we don't get chance to visit such events as indian policies against blockchain. but I am surely looking forward to attend one of such event soon. It will be all total different experience just watching all recordings and actually attending events and meeting gr8 personalities.

Great initiative to democratize blockchain and Steemit. The only negative point, I couldn't go to see it in NY :-).

Thank you @heroldius! We'll create a virtual gallery for the next round :D

Ah cool, but with your different posts, we could see the exhibition even if we were far.

Great job!!!
Following you!!!

Our team will be compiling a press-release 1-pager of the event soon. This archive is definitely a lot to scroll through :)
