Le Marais Gallery
Le Marais Gallery is another one of the most visited galleries in the virtual world and exhibits Cryptovoxel wearables designed by Fireball and Bullauge that are available for purchase on OpenSea.
During my visit this July, the gallery was exhibiting a fun collection of medieval regalia, jewelry, and weaponry. If you’re in the market for a gem-encrusted dagger or a mace, then there’s an extra reason to check out Le Marais.
In addition to art, they're also known to display the occasional advertisements on their billboards above the gallery. If you're an artist and are looking for some exposure, you might look into advertising your work at Le Marais or another location in Cryptovoxels.

Marble Tower is an 8-floor elaborate exhibition space featuring artworks owned by NFT collector, supahmarbler. The “gallery” has had over 11,000 visitors, and it is an excellent example of how individual collectors are building spaces in virtual worlds like Cryptovoxels and Decentraland to share and display their growing NFT collections.

The B.20 Monument is a public art project from Metapurse. This estate features select works from Beeple's 2020 iconic 1/1 “Everydays.”
The space was built by Voxel Architects and is interesting in its own right. With a ground floor containing glowing trees, mesmerizing light fixtures and fountain and an exhibition space on the upper floors reminiscent of a Star Trek starship, the space also includes an original soundscape by 3LAU.
The artwork on display forms an immutable bundle and ownership of the art collection has been fractionalized with B20 tokens, which are available for purchase and collective ownership.
It’s well worth checking out for the design and to get a closer look at some of Beeple’s iconic works!
