Collector’s preview and reception Thursday, March 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wynwood Walls
Opens to the public April Fool’s Day 2022
GGA Gallery at the Wynwood Walls proudly presents: TUNNEY MUNNEY: THE EXHIBITION with a preview, reception and Q+A with the artist Peter Tunney on Thursday, March 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition surveys the history of Tunney Munney, a proprietary project that has unfolded and evolved over 20 years. Never before seen vibrant and colorful large scale canvases will be on view; riffing on the themes of money, NFTs, crypto currency, and the brave new world we all inhabit today. Also on view will be the earliest examples of Tunney Munney, works on paper, the famed physical “munney blocks,” and other curious works of art that have been created over the past 2 decades. The exhibition explores the fascinating journey from the creation of a physical block of money, works on paper, followed by the launch of Tunney Munney non-fungible tokens, and now back to traditional paintings on canvas.
The exhibition of physical artwork follows the recent launch of Tunney’s first NFT project – “TUNNEY MUNNEY,” a collection of 5,000 NFT’s on the Ethereum blockchain inspired by Tunney Munney imagery. As part of the physical exhibition, viewers will also be able to explore Tunney’s NFT story on OpenSea along with the NFT landscape at large.
A core component of Tunney Munney is to activate a larger community and utilize the broad reach of NFT’s to raise awareness and move the needle on the social issues Tunney passionately supports. A portion of funds from Tunney Munney and the sale of artworks have supported The Sunny Center, The Christopher Reeve Foundation, The Innocence Project and Bring Change to Mind. These 501c3 organizations are near and dear to Tunney’s heart and he and his team have worked tirelessly for years supporting these projects.
Peter Tunney (b.1961) is a legitimate force of nature with boundless creative energy, spreading his positive messages in unconventional ways and delivering works of art to a worldwide collector base. He creates in almost every medium: paint, collage, wood, photography, found objects, and discarded materials. His nontraditional life, cache of extraordinary experiences, and countless wild adventures serve as the foundations for his work. Since declaring himself an artist in 1987, Tunney delivers his messages of Gratitude, Don’t Panic, The Time Is Always Now, Fear Less, Love More and Change the Way You See Everything to a vast and global audience. As Wynwood’s first tenant, The Peter Tunney Experience has been a fixture in the thriving Wynwood neighborhood.
GGA Gallery is located inside the Wynwood Walls at 266 NW 26th St, Miami, FL 33127. To RSVP to the preview and Q+A, email RSVP@carmaconnected.com.
