NFTs are like art, but nice and fratty. (Great Margin, Laden Barge)

In a new exhibit at AB Freeman Business School, students put the coloring pages they made to good use for their homework. Proudly displayed in the Marshall Family Commons are hundreds of originally designed non-fungible tokens.

NFTs are defined as a digital medium that can be bought and sold as part of Ethereum – a cryptocurrency like bitcoin, dogecoin, etc. – blockchain. Buying a work is similar to buying an original Van Gogh at auction; of course, the creator still owns the rights to it and anyone can buy a print, but only one person can own the original. So you too can be the sole owner of the digital version of artwork created by Tulane University students. It is a very prestigious honor.

The NFTs themselves cover a wide variety of topics. My favorite piece of work was a GIF created by student Inie Daraise featuring her slow consumption of a communal meal, then quickly running to the nearest restroom. I think that really speaks to a powerful aspect of the Tulane experience that often goes unnoticed. I would have bought it myself, but it had already been purchased by alumni Mormany Thansents (TU ’69) for the whopping sum of $15,000.

Student Brad Chadlington II said of his paper, “Yeah uh, that took a lot of work I guess. That experience was, like, super valuable. I’m not an artistic guy, but this drawing of a fish doing whippets really means a lot to me. It feels good to know that so many people could find the same value in it as I did.

The guy standing next to him, without my asking, said “You know, the future really is in cryptocurrency, and I’m proud that Tulane was bold enough to let us into that world as part of of our learning.

If you’re wondering where your money is going, don’t worry, it’s not already massive endowment of the business school. It will be split in two ways: half of the money won will go directly to Ligma Chive’s Derby Days fundraising event. The other half will go to a legal fund to support victims of reverse racism in this changing professional world. So come and support the NFT gallery! Not only to support the students and their hard work, but also these two incredible causes.
