2022 FUTURE ART AWARDS: THE DIGITAL AWAKENING

An arts-based exploration and interrogation of meta-futures.

As human beings begin to shift away from the physical world in favor of virtual and augmented realities, the world of art stands at the center of a global movement where immersive worlds, online avatars, and the advent of a digital blockchain-based-future will inevitably have a profound impact on art, culture, politics, activism and the economy. 

Between May 1st and July 15th, 2022, the 4th Annual Future Art Awards: The Digital Awakening extended an open call to U.S. artists from all walks of life and creative expressions wishing to use their art to reimagine what a high-tech, highly connected future metaverse could look that is also deeply human.

Each work of art was reviewed by an independent jury of artists and arts professionals through a blind review process.

Congratulations to the following artists for receiving a 2022 Future Art Award in one of three categories, using the power of contemporary art to shape important ideas, values and themes in the crypto-art space. Your creative brilliance is propelling the future trajectory of the NFT art ecosystem forward and MOZAIK Philanthropy is honored to support and showcase your creative contributions in this emerging field.
