The original Pool, which contained 180 artists, has now grown to 322 from over 25 countries. Artists in the Pool were invited to submit a pre-existing work or a newly created one that addressed the Mask Ephemera theme.  From that process, 142 artworks were selected to be featured in the week of events. Collecting NFT Art can be a form of patronage and support for artists and creativity itself.
