If you’ve been looking for a cool way to engage in the Metaverse, well this is it. Korbel California Champagne and Latinas in Tech have come up with an innovative and timely way to honor the contributions of Latinas in the STEM fields.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Korbel has joined forces with Latinas in Tech — a non-profit organization with the aim to connect, support, and empower Hispanic women working in technology — to present Luminarias, a virtual art exhibition spotlighting 30 Latina changemakers in the STEM industries.
Ranging from corporate executives to digital creators, the honorees are represented as individual NFT portraits and featured in a fully-immersive VR gallery (accessible via computer, VR headset, or any connected device).
Designed by award-winning illustrator and digital artist Lucia Diaz, each Luminarias portrait may be purchased as a charity NFT, with all proceeds donated to support the mission of Latinas in Tech. Bidding begins at 0.030 Ethereum (ETH) or $50 USD on OpenSea.
I’m excited to grab one or more of these and. I’ll definitely be joining in to toast the achievements of these inspirational women and celebrate their extraordinary achievements. What about you?
