Here are the top NFT events that will be featured in this year’s Miami Art Week.
Ancient Future by SaveArtSpace and SISU
SaveArtSpace, a non-profit organization, and SISU, a community focusing on supporting Earth restoration projects, are presenting a public art exhibition from November 29 to December 4. Ancient Future, curated by Angela del Sol (the steward of SISU) will exhibit two satellite exhibitions during Miami Art Week. Among these exhibitions are the Satellite Art Show, featuring 13 artists, and the SCOPE Art Fair, with accomplished photographer Rob Woodcox.
Ancient Future, a billboard exhibition, is exploring climate change and the effect humans could have if humanity worked together. Angela del Sol’s mission is to help create a more inclusive world, one that empowers women, entrepreneurs, and Indigenous communities. Thanks to NFTs, media, and Web3 collaborations, del Sol is achieving climate protection and action in many creative ways.

The world-renowned international contemporary art show, SCOPE, is returning for its 20th year in Miami for a beachside exhibition. On November 30, guests will have the opportunity to see art from 140 international exhibitors along with panel discussions, nightlife events, and state-of-the-art installations. The tickets will be redeemable for entry to 130 international galleries at Art Basel.
Moreover, the tickets were made available on November 3 and feature artwork from the artists behind Cool Cats NFT and Mason Rothschild. Thanks to SCOPE’s partnerships with the Creative Artist Agency (CAA) and YellowHeart (Web3 ticketing marketplace), the tickets came to life. In other words, platinum and VIP NFT tickets can be traded and resold before and after the event.
