TIMEPieces is a celebration of the art of artists that has been a key aspect of TIME’s brand for almost 100 years. Three drops were hosted by the initiative, featuring 78 artists. All artists from Artists for Peace have participated in a TIMEPieces Drop before.
TIMEPieces represents an important first step in TIME’s Web3 community initiative with the goal of building utility and community value over the long-term—for artists, collectors, and brand marketers looking to enter the space.
The auction comes after the closing of the previous TIME SlicesDrop, TIMEPieces latest collection of NFT art, inspired by TIME’s nearly 100 year history. Featuring an innovative burn mechanic, collectors minted over 10,000 NFT’s from 99 collages, one for each year of TIME’s existence, and hand-made by TIME’s creative director, D.W. Pine. The Slices were exchanged for pieces of random art, which was distributed by a remarkable 38-strong roster. Holders used 5,300 Slices to get randomly selected pieces from the TIMEPeace gallery.
