Atlanta-based creative company Elevation is honoring Martin Luther King Day on Monday by offering a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to raise money for its Designed with Love initiative, which supports an endowed scholarship for black students at Savannah College of Art and Design.
All proceeds from the sale of these NFTs go directly toward benefitting the Designed with Love project. They also have an embedded royalty, so if they change hands, 10% of those proceeds also go to Designed with Love. All of the original pieces of digital art work are available on the OpenSea marketplace.
Below are two of the NFTs on offer through the project:
Half-Tanzanian motion designer Kito Kondowe created the below piece, “Dream,” to honor the legacy of Dr. King.
Self-taught visual artist and poet Joel Sydenham did the below pencil-and-ink portrait of Dr. King in reference to the time in which King existed. He completed the background with red and blue ink as well as white space to represent the American flag. He then included some of Dr. King’s famous quotes.
