Art Allert!!Catch the Red Bull Canvas Cooler Project New York Looks intresting


National Tour Gives Artists Unique Exhibition, Career Boosting Opportunities & 

Red Bull Curates: The Canvas Cooler Project New York is pairing 20 handpicked New York-based artists with venue owners from some of the city’s hottest local bars, lounges and restaurants.  Selected artists will be given a one-day challenge to transform a blank, canvas-wrapped Red Bull Cooler into an inspired work of art customized for permanent display at each venue.  The art created will be exhibited in a one-night only public showcase on Thursday, September 19 at The 1896 in Brooklyn.  Attending guests and a panel of curatorial judges will vote on each piece, sending two artists, and possibly a third, to SCOPE Miami Beach in December, where they will show and sell a collection of their work during the world's premier international art show for modern and contemporary works, Art Basel.
In addition to the two New York artists selected by the luminary panel of judges the night of the showcase, two additional artists will be entered into the People’s Choice Award pool, which gives one more artist the opportunity to join the group show at SCOPE Miami Beach.  The two artists will be chosen based upon the number of social media mentions using their custom hashtag on Twitter the night of the event, and the People’s Choice Award will be announced in November.
The New York exhibition is the fifth in this national art tour of six cities.  The Canvas Cooler Project 2013 launched in San Francisco in January, with additional exhibitions in Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas, honoring a diverse group of artists from mixed disciplines including fine art, street art, graphic design and more.  By combining social media, local industry and a no-boundaries stance on art style, this forward-thinking art tour has set a new tone for taking local artists communities and placing them on a global platform.  The final exhibition and competition before the group show at SCOPE Miami Beach will be hosted in Atlanta on October 17.
