Jeremy Booth, a leading NFT artist known for his Western-themed artwork, has announced a new project aimed at bringing more traditional Western artists into the Web3 space. The initiative, called the Western Art Dept, seeks to onboard more creators into the digital art realm while tapping established NFT artists that can pay homage to the genre’s rich history.

The Western Art Dept will feature 1-of-1 NFTs from several artists and will be hosted on the NFT art platform, Foundation, beginning in early May. According to Booth, the project is rooted in conversations he has had with painter Robert Hagan, who is renowned for his Western-themed landscapes and subjects. Booth sees the Western Art Dept as a long-term project to develop relationships with traditional artists and help them enter the NFT space.

For its latest edition of M Conversations, the institution led a curatorial walkthrough and discussion that navigated the nuances of art and in particular, the relation of abstraction and nature in their latest exhibition, “Wild: Women Abstractionists on Nature” at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila.
