The Rare Digital Art Feast is a food and drink-centric digital art exhibit held in San Francisco on June 20th 2019, and an event for creators, art collectors and art lovers.
Enthusiasts will learn how digital art can actually be as unique as your grandmother's secret recipe, what opportunities there are for collecting art, and how blockchain opens up a whole new world of benefits that creators and collectors can eat up to their heart's content.
