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.
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.
These folders contain open-source assets (adobe illustrator files, icons and infographics) that will be used for The Crypto Renaissance Exhibition in New York City. These graphics were developed and used for signage pertaining to the exhibit and are made available here to the public to use under a Creative Commons license. All @sndbox content CC BY-NC-ND, 2018.
