ArtVndngMchn Woman

ArtVndngMchn Woman is rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta
ArtVndngMchn Woman is 1 of 1 rare digital art by Joe Chiappetta, available on AtomicHub. This new painting represents a stand-alone NFT piece of retro fine art while also serving as an illustration to a sci-fi short story that can only be read in the ArtVndngMchn Amusement Park on a Minecraft server called The Uplift World. As someone living in Southern California for many years now, I appreciate how this artwork looks like it could be a scene from one of our beachfront piers or marketplaces just off the beach.

While the below event has concluded, you can still visit this site for an out-of-this-world fine art, gaming, and reading experience.

I am pleased to announce the start of a new adventure in art, gaming, and reading where participants can earn a free NFT!

MERCYworldwide Thanks ArtVndngMchn

ArtVndngMchn is a fine art project involving over 20 international artists releasing fine art NFTs in wrapped randomized bundles on the WAX blockchain. Series 1 of ArtVndngMchn donated over $4,000 to MERCYworldwide. ArtVndngMchn Series 2, which launched July 10th, will donate 25% of the profits to MERCYworldwide. On the eve of the series 2 launch, Nick Bordieri, the Executive Director of MERCYworldwide, sent the following thank-you letter.

Dear Joe,
A BIG thank you to you and your fellow ArtVndngMchn artists for your generous donation from Series 1 to MERCYworldwide. What an impact you have had on the 100 children at the Real MERCY School in Okobaba, Nigeria: one of the poorest floating cities in the world!  

ArtVndngMchn Series 1 funded the International Day of MERCY event last weekend for 100 children and 60 parents. We were able to purchase the necessary items to help launch the new meal program at the school. The nutritious meal we provide every child every day at school may be the only meal some of these children have throughout the day. Thank you for supporting the children and for making this event incredible. 

Gas tank and gas stove for cooking 

MERCY Ambassadors prepared the meals for the children and parents during the event. The children were so excited. And the parents were so grateful to witness their children receiving a quality education in a safe, nurturing environment. 

The children shouted for joy!   

The funds from ArtVndngMchn Series 2 will be used for the continued support of the children at the Real MERCY School, as well as The MERCY International School in Jacmel, Haiti, considered to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere!  

Thank you for your support to create opportunities for all these children and their families to live better lives!

Nick Bordieri
Executive Director
