Branden Ellis Graduated from Lynn University in December. He’s since gone viral for his TikTok videos.

“I’ve had some really cool opportunities with them and with the help of dean Santolo I was able to mint them into NFTs and get them displayed over here,” said Ellis.

One of his TikToks – now one of 65 NFTs – is being showcased across six monitors that make up this walking exhibit, his alma matter’s newest venture.

“To be able to come over here and see it under the Lynn university NFT museum is just mind-blowing honestly,” Ellis said.

The mind behind the walking museum is Cesar Santalo, dean of Lynn’s college of communication and design.

“We were just looking at something that could be copied over and over again but here what we are looking at now is an original that has a provenance that is a one of a kind,” Santalo said.

The items are one-of-a-kind works that can be purchased by visitors when the exhibit opens to the public by clicking on QR codes, Santalo said. By the fall, he hopes to have a full NFT curriculum.

The exhibit is free and open to the public in the Bric building in Boca Raton.
