RED BULL CURATES: THE CANVAS COOLER PROJECT
HIGHLIGHTS NEW YORK AREA ARTISTS
IN SPECIAL EXHIBIT AT VILLAIN IN WILLIAMSBURG ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2012

Public Gallery Show To Include Curatorial Judging Panel & Audience Choice Voting

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (September 8, 2012) – Red Bull Curates: The Canvas Cooler Project is giving artists wings as it tours the United States. After hosting gallery events in Los Angeles and Chicago, the program arrives in New York with a public gallery event on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 8 p.m. at Villain, located at 50N. 3rd St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This special event is one night only and open to ages 21 and over. For more information visit: www.redbullusa.com/curates.

The Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project pairs local emerging artists with Brooklyn venue owners to create custom and functional pieces of art to be displayed in the hottest bars, lounges and restaurants around town. On September 9 and 10, 2012, thirty handpicked artists will create their masterpieces at Villain, a 5,000-square-foot event and photo space located minutes from downtown NYC. All artists will begin with a blank Red Bull canvas-wrapped cooler, which they will transform into inspired works of art. On Thursday, September 13, 2012 the finished pieces will be revealed to the public in a special exhibition.

During the reveal event, gallery patrons will vote for their favorite pieces alongside a curatorial judging panel led by Daria Brit Shapiro, of the internationally renowned SCOPE Art Show, contemporary pop artist Ron English and Carlo McCormick, Senior Editor of PAPER Magazine. The three New York artists whose works receive the most votes at the end of the night will join the winners from Los Angeles and Chicago in an all-expense paid trip to Miami to participate in a Red Bull Curates group show at SCOPE Miami during Art Basel, where they will have the chance to exhibit and sell selections of their works.
