Your Daytime Fireworks: May the 4th be with you #TheTRLabWay
Dear TRLab Community,
Today marks the close of Week Two in the Cailendar. As we move into an exciting third week, I want to thank each of you and announce an exciting opportunity for collectors of multiple Fireworks.
May 4th has always been special. To me, to the art lovers of Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum, to TRLab, and now hopefully to you!
- In A Message from Our Co-Founders (posted in the announcement of our recent round of fundraising), you may have noticed #TheTRLabWay as a nod to Star Wars #MaytheFourthBeWithYou.
- It was May 4, 2010 when Rockbund Art Museum first opened.
- It was May 4, 2010 when I first met Cai Guo-Qiang.
- This upcoming May 4th, 2022 will be the 12th anniversary of the opening night of Cai’s show Cai Guo-Qiang: Peasant Da Vincis at Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum.
Honoring special dates is important to Master Cai and to TRLab. On Tuesday, May 4th, 2022 we will be releasing details about a celebratory limited-edition NFT artwork created by Cai Guo-Qiang.
If you collect 1 firework from 12 different countries (not packets), you will be eligible to burn them for this special artwork. In this context, “burning them” means sending these NFTs to an inaccessible address to remove them from circulation.
This is just one of the ways we acknowledge commitment from our HODLers.
Thank you for taking this journey with us. TRLab is only as great as its community, and I am personally so grateful for the ongoing support and feedback.
