NFTs to be auctioned by Des Moines art gallery, marketing company

Break out the cryptocurrency and let the bidding begin.

On Valentine’s Day, bidding opens for three non-fungible tokens (NFTs) sponsored by a Des Moines-based art gallery and digital marketing company with proceeds benefiting a Clive non-profit organization.

California-based artist Betsy Enzensberger created three NFTs that include “automated loops of colorful particles colliding to form a whimsical popsicle,” according to a statement from Happy Medium, a social and digital media agency. The NFTs are on display at Liz Lidgett Gallery & Design at 111 E. Grand Ave., Suite 110.

Bidding for each of the three NFTs starts at 0.0325 ETH or $100.49 on Monday at 8 a.m. through Feb. 21 on OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace.

Enzensberger will receive a percentage of the profits and the rest will be donated to Count the Kicks, a stillbirth prevention campaign that provides educational resources to health-care providers and expecting parents, according to the organization’s website.

“These are beautiful pieces by a well established artist and it’s going for a great cause so I’m hoping that people find NFTs can actually be very affordable to get into if you’re interested either in art or investing in art,” Lidgett said.
