SPOTLIGHT: This Longtime Bored Ape Yacht Club Member's Bored Ape Was Showcased At The Louvre.
From high-end fashion to high art, this Bored Ape Yacht Club member’s primate has been making its waves in the upper echelons of society for months!
Longtime BAYC member Bored Caviar’s Bored Ape recently graced the walls of the Louvre Museum in Paris France.
“From the city of angels to the city of love, an honor to celebrate a special milestone for the best team in web3 @yugalabs @BoredApeYC in the iconic louvre, alongside the oldest and finest pieces of art in the world,” Bored Caviar tweeted earlier today.
Bored Caviar’s primate, Bored Ape #1807 ,was one of eight Bored Apes and two Mutant Apes that Yuga Labs featured at the 230 year-old museum in Paris France.
“Partnering with Paris Blockchain Week to display notable Apes in the Louvre was a creative way to not only recognize BAYC’s outsized impact on culture, but also showcase how Apes have leveraged IP in exciting ways," Yuga Labs’ Chief Creative Officer Michael Figge told the Gazette. “It also drives forward the very important conversation of digital art getting the recognition it deserves.”
Bored Caviar’s Bored Ape, Bored Ape #1807, is a six-trait dark brown fur primate with a lumberjack shirt, heart eyes, a beanie and a bored cigarette mouth. Based on these traits, Bored Ape #1807 is the 8993rd most rare bored Ape, according to Rarity Tools.
Before Bored Caviar’s primate was showcased at the Louvre, the notable BAYC member released a collection of Cashmere sweaters with Artcade @ Fred Segal in October 2022.
