Never Miss Out On An Art Drop Again

Tired of getting lost in the sauce of social media? Artists can now share Artist Updates on HUG Artists & collectors deserve to connect directly, without an algorithm deciding what's important for them. Users can now follow artists on HUG to receive a notification and an email whenever they post an update.

Once an artist has 10 followers on HUG, they can share four different kinds of updates:

✧ Announcements

✧ Item for Sale (Digital or Physical)

✧ Giveaways

✧ Events

We've partnered with our friends at Manifold to detect when HUG Artists release new drops on their platform, automatically syndicating to their Artist Updates and informing their followers instantly!

Follow HUG3PO on Twitter

Bring HUG Artist Updates directly update to your Twitter feed with HUG3PO, our bot specifically programmed to free you from FOMO. HUG3PO automatically tweets and shares the latest and greatest updates on new art drops, giveaways, and more from HUG Artists.

Introducing the HUG Visionary Initiative

Like the Meta Angels x Adobe Artist-in-Residence Program before it, our new HUG Visionary Initiative will provide financial compensation and support to artists. Recipients will benefit from amplification and promotion to HUG’s audience of 2M+ while also allowing our holders to accessibly expand their art collections.

Each month, HUG will select & elevate 2 artists each month as a Visionary. Each Visionary will receive $500 USD for their art to be minted as timed editions which HUG’s community can mint with HUG Points over 2 weeks. Upon selection, the exact number of editions will be determined per individual artist at their discretion.

To be considered, complete an application and submit unminted artwork you’d like to be collected by HUG’s community.

Her piece, “Never Let Go”, will be available to our holders to claim with HUG Points starting June 19.
