Red Bull Art of Can exhibit coming October 8th - 19th
Conversation will go way beyond politics this fall as the Red Bull Art of Can exhibit opens October 8 - 19 and showcases a wide variety of art made from recycled materials. The exhibit gets sworn in at Union Station, where a collection of 56 pieces will be on display, including a 14-foot bull, an 8-foot octopus and the familiar donkey and elephant representing our fellow Democrat and Republican parties.
The Red Bull Art of Can competition challenges artists to construct pieces created with or inspired by Red Bull Energy Drink and Red Bull Simply Cola cans. Innovative artists – professional and amateur – submitted their designs for consideration. Red Bull cans used for the pieces ranged from one to 4000! Ultimately 56 pieces were selected to be a part of the DC Collection. The featured artists are creative types of all ages and occupations – from students to industrial designers and sales professionals to teachers.
The exhibit is located in the main lobby of Union Station and the free event runs October 8 – 19th. For more information, including a preview of the art or to vote online for “People’s Choice Award" CLICK HERE.
