Red Bull Curates: The Canvas Cooler Project, a national touring program, is stopping at the Eiffel Society on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans on June 26 to host a one-night-only showcase of 20 local artists’ work.

The work featured will be a product of 20 artists paring with 20 local venues, in order to transform a blank, canvas-wrapped Red Bull cooler into a work of art customized for permanent display at each venue.

The Canvas Cooler Project will have two artists’ coolers selected by a panel of judges during the public showcase to represent their City at SCOPE Art Show running concurrently with Art Basal Miami Beach come December.

Curator of the Red Truck Gallery,  Noah Antieau, renowned graffiti artist Risk, and photographer and New Orleans native Frank Relle will be on the esteemed panel of judges who will choose the two selected artists.

Two more New Orleans artists will have the opportunity to be entered into the People’s Choice Award pool, which gives one more artist the opportunity to show their work at SCOPE Art Fair. The two artists will be chosen through the number of social media mentions using their custom hashtag on Twitter the night of the event, and the People’s Choice Award winner will be announced in November.

On Thursday, June 26, the showcase will open to the public from 8 to 11 p.m. at Eiffel Society on 2040 St. Charles Avenue. The event is free and open to those 21 and over.
