The MetaMuseum in The Sandbox
The MetaMuseum in The Sandbox is set to be the hub for fans of the artists to congregate. Within the area of LAND, users will be able to view new art, enjoy parties and live music from Alec, and access limited edition NFTs.
Alec Monopoly spoke on the platform. He said: “The Sandbox is the leading Web3 metaverse and I am thrilled to partner and collaborate with them. From accessories to avatars to my new foray into Electronic Music, The Sandbox offers so much potential for me to share my creative energy with the community.”
It’ll be interesting to see how Alec Monopoly’s IRL artwork and his NFT artwork through the ‘Rags to Richie’ collection will be incorporated into the LAND.
A trailer of ‘Rags to Richie’ can be seen here, which also includes a mansion, that assumably could be the MetaMuseum
