Art of Can 2010 Competition

Art of Can 2010, a national juried exhibition featuring artwork in a variety of media that have one thing in common—they are all inspired by Red Bull or crafted from the iconic blue and silver cans. The juried exhibition is open to anyone with a flair for creativity and the talent to transform an original concept into a compelling piece of art that can be shared with a public audience.

This year the exhibit is being held at Galleria Dallas. We have an incredible team building out a gallery near Louis Vuitton, Betsey Johnson, Sephora, etc. The gallery it's self is being developed by an incredbile architect from NYC that works on amazing installations around the world. The exhibit will run for the longest time to day, THREE WEEKS! The past three AOC exhibits have all had between 60K-100K consumers attending in only two weeks, so we have high expectations of this year's Dallas exhibit!
