Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project Atlanta

The Westside Cultural Arts Center was the setting Thursday night for the Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project Atlanta. Twenty local artists were challenged to transform a blank canvas-wrapped Red Bull cooler into a work of art.

Red Bull Canvas Cooler ProjectGuests and a panel of judges voted on the coolers via Twitter hashtag, with the two top artists scoring a spot in the SCOPE Art Show during Art Basel week in Miami in December.

The participating artists included InKyoung Chun, Patrick Davis Allen Taylor, Catlanta, ericmack, Sarah Emerson, Brandon Sadler Joe Tsambiras, Michi Meko, olive47, Alvaro Alvillar, Sanithna Phansavanh, Emer, PLF (Peter Ferrari), Lela Brunet, Spencer Murrill, Mike Germon, Jesse Jaeger, Sam Parker and Matt Relkin.

The winning artists were Sarah Emerson and Sam Parker. Lela Brunet and Peter Ferrari were the people’s choice winners.

The coolers will be on display at restaurants and venues around Atlanta.
