Celebrity Cruises is riding the wave of the future of art with its first entry into non-fungible tokenS. Celebrity Cruises is known for next-generation ships at the convergence of architecture and design.
Celebrity has launched the Peacemakers Sunset NFT collection in collaboration with acclaimed artist Rubem Robierb, a longtime featured artist with the cruise line. The collection complements Robierb’s striking Peacemakers sculpture, which is shown on Celebrity Beyond. Each NFT includes two tickets to the ship’s special naming ceremony and voyage in Fort Lauderdale from November 4th to 6th.
The new NFT collection includes a limited edition of five motion art pieces, one of which is on exhibit at the Cube Art Fair in Times Square from May 18th to 22nd. The NFTs will be available for purchase on the OpenSea platform on June 1st. The artist will receive the proceeds from the sales.
Onboard Celebrity Beyond, a variant of these NFTs labeled “Peacemakers, Blue Sky” may be found, making it the first NFT at Sea
“Innovation is a cornerstone of the Celebrity Cruises experience and a defining feature of our ships,” stated Michael Scheiner, Chief Marketing Officer of Celebrity Cruises. “What’s possible in this space, and how we can link our visitors with new immersive and accessible experiences, is truly limitless.” It’s thrilling to take this first step with Rubem’s abilities and craftsmanship.”
“Peacemakers is a tribute to the world’s peacemakers, and the NFTs bring to life the idea that peace is a communal act that can never be taken for granted,” stated Rubem Robierb. “I and you, Yin and Yang, masculine and feminine. There is only one option to end all hostilities and conflicts, and that answer is peace. It’s been an honor to collaborate with Celebrity Cruises again, pushing the boundaries of our artistic partnership to new heights, from the metaverse to exhibiting the first NFT at sea.”
The NFTs can be resold and exchanged an unlimited number of times after they go on sale. Each owner of a Peacemakers Sunset NFT will be regarded the recipient of an invitation to the Celebrity Beyond naming ceremony and sailing on November 4th – 6th, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET on July 1st.
