London, UK, Oct. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — La Vitrine Contemporain de Monaco will be hosting The Rocky Horror Show NFTs IRL art exhibition from Tuesday, October 17th 2023.
The micro-gallery, in the glamorous principality of Monaco, will be showcasing physical representations of nine The Rocky Horror Show NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Each of the unique artworks will depict a different iconic character from the cult show including Frank-N-Furter, Riff Raff, Janet and Brad. The art has been designed exclusively for the exhibition as part of the ground-breaking musical’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The Rocky Horror Show LVCDM Monaco Collection, in merging the physical and the virtual worlds, offers fans of The Rocky Horror Show a chance to own both a digital and real-life piece of the musical’s legacy.
The physical artworks are ‘unlockable’ content, which means collectors can only obtain them by purchasing their identical digital counterpart on NFT marketplace OpenSea. The NFTs will have an inherent value as a scarce collectible, will act as a key to the physical art and provide an immutable certificate of ownership as they are on the blockchain. They can be resold independently of the physical pieces.
The collection can be viewed here: https://opensea.io/collection/the-rocky-horror-show-lvcdm-monaco-collection Each piece will be priced at 5 ETH (approximately €7450). Offers can be made ahead of the exhibition.
“The ‘unlockable’ feature of these nine NFTs make them extremely rare and offers collectors the opportunity to own something unique and original that has added real-world value,” said Clem Chambers, CEO of Online Blockchain. “Monaco, with its vibrant art scene, is the perfect place to house such an innovative collection, which celebrates the whimsical world that The Rocky Horror Show encapsulates.”
La Vitrine Contemporaine de Monaco (1 avenue Henri Dunant, Monte-Carlo, Monaco) will exhibit the artworks until November 17th, 2023.
