Sad I missed the #NewEraIntroducing Project event! @new_era_TOR

I feel like majority of the awesome events happen when I’m traveling! Last night New Era introduced Toronto to the “creative minds of tomorrow” through a unique gallery experience, showcasing up-and-coming talent from across North America. I wasn’t able to go, but Twitter was buzzing with tweets about all the amazing New Era 59FIFTY caps!

 A little about the New Era Introducing Project.

New Era Introducing is a global creative project that was launched by the brand’s EMA branch, and aims to give unique, up-and-coming talent an opportunity to make their own artistic statement using a blank New Era 59FIFTY fitted cap as their canvas. The top 100 artists were given a blank New Era 59FIFTY cap and asked to transform it into a distinctive work of art and capture the creative process behind their design,  detailing it’s birth, creation, experience and influences.

Here are some of my favourites from the exhibit!

I’m so gutted that I missed this event… However, if you’re in Toronto, you still have a chance to check out the exhibit today at Edward Day Gallery (952 Queen Street West #200) from 12pm-7pm. Go, go go!

Congratulations to all the artists on a job well done! And thank you to everyone who tweeted and instagramed pics of all the awesome hats!

peace and love
