Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Receives $100,000 Donation From Art Blocks Auction of NFTs

Posted November 13, 2023

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (CureAlz) received a $100,000 donation from the sale of generative art created by five celebrated digital artists, organized by Art Blocks in collaboration with The Giving Block.

In October, generative art platform Art Blocks hosted reGEN — an exclusive sale of works by five leading artists from around the world, supported by Right Click Save. reGEN unites artists and collectors in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, with proceeds from the auction donated to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. reGEN is curated by Alex Estorick and Foteini Valeonti, who have also raised more than $500,000 this year in support of Cure Parkinson’s and The ALS Association. A collaboration with The Giving Block, reGEN supports the global movement of generative artists in fighting neurodegenerative diseases that affects millions globally.

The five artists who participated in the auction are Melissa Wiederrecht, Sputniko!, Nat Sarkissian, Robert Hodgin, and Marcelo Soria-Rodriguez.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of the five artists, The Giving Block and Art Blocks,” said Meg Smith, CEO of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. “The creativity embodied by the art and the donations from this event will generate enormous returns in scientific progress. Alzheimer’s robs people of their stories, and it is fitting that a wonderful consequence of the works of self-expression by the five exceptional artists will be scientific research to preserve the stories and selves of others.”
