The Big Apple showed big support for New York City artists during Red Bull Curates: The Canvas Cooler Project event and exhibition hosted at Villain in Williamsburg, Brooklyn last Thursday. The final leg of the three-city competition drew a capacity crowd of nearly 2,000 art enthusiasts attending and voting for their favorite custom-designed Red Bull coolers, crafted by 30 urban, contemporary and street artists. The functional pieces of art will be installed in top venues throughout the city.
During the much anticipated finale, works by Gerardo Cid and L’Amour Supreme received the most votes from the curatorial panel of judges led by Daria Brit Shapiro, of the internationally renowned SCOPE Art Show, contemporary pop artist Ron English and Carlo McCormick, Senior Editor of PAPER Magazine. Throughout the night, thousands of guests voted for their favorite canvas wrapped coolers and ultimately honored artists CLAW MONEY and KOSBEwith the Audience Choice Awards.
All four New York area artists will join the winners from Los Angeles and Chicago in an all-expense paid trip to Miami to participate in a Red Bull Curates group show at SCOPE Miami during Art Basel, where they will have the chance to exhibit and sell works from their own collections.
According to Ron English: “This project gives [artists] accessibility to places larger than the community they are currently in…they develop relationships with the pieces they created reflecting their own personal growth as artists and it is truly phenomenal to be a part of.”

Sup Cole World!!!!!
Its been awhile, i really missed ya’ll! I’ve been transitioning my move from Austin Texas to here in New York City!!! So again i apologize for not posting as regularly as i was :0). So recently i’ve been gettn the question of “Craig why New York??” Well the answer is i will be attending New York Film Academy and my classes start February 29th.
I’m going for theater, i did some theater in San Antonio Texas and i can honestly say being infront of an audience, there is no better rush than that. New York Film Academy has on of the best programs in the city, and is widely known by all. The school caught my attention back in 2009 when the director of Rush Hour 1 and 2 did a promo for the school saying all these wonderful things about it so from there i decided to apply and chase my dream.
So make sure you also check their website out and join me in class!!!! Light Camera Action baby!!!!
With about a month until Labor Day, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be wearing for one of the most fun weekends of the summer…
If you’re looking for the perfect outfit—think celebrity-level stylish—I’d definitely suggest checking out Roni, a trendy clothing line and boutique with locations in Soho, Nolita, and West Village, which features exclusive designs from the Roni label itself as well as unique designers you won’t find anywhere else including Alexia Admor, Carolina Amato, LAMB, Laila Azhar, and LaRok, and many others.
Roni’s styles have been worn by celebrities like, Kelly Ripa, Brooke Shields, Aisha Taylor and more. Check out some photos below!
Do you still follow the rule “no white after Labor Day”? I feel like if you want to rock it, go for it. In Miami (where I’m from) no one bats an eye about a little post-LD white. 🙂
The great thing is you won’t break the bank with styles like these because everything—rompers, dresses, jackets—at Roni is priced between $100 and $500.

Last weekend, my girl Teo took me to Max Brenner aka Chocolate heaven of New York City. With hour long line ups and a fully stacked chocolate menu… this is amazing! I had the Choco-pops hot chocolate and it was simply delish. I can’t wait to go back for more hot chocolate…it is served in a ‘hugmug’ with no handles and you have to cup it in your hands! So sweet right?When you are this awesome, your face goes on the napkin!
Oh ya. there is even chocolate pizza! So if you want to indulge a little bit and find out more… Yelp it*HeyDoYou is for the cute, clever and connected*
- This guy really is not my type but there are several things that I find really intriguing about him. I saw him on the F train last week and it was around 7pm. I am going to guess that he is an engineer or something technical. He has a cool hair cut and an iPhone. I knew he would have an iPhone because of his low key attire yet fancy stripe socks. He is wearing a zip-up fleece and khakis and Diesel type shoes. But the socks give away his fun and creativity he tries to hide everyday in life and work. Of course I am only assuming. If you were my boyfriend, you would be a great balance in my chaotic life and make sure I don’t leave the stove on, pay bills late or eat after 8pm. And I will, for you, let you creativity shine and sing to you every day and make you laugh. Sometimes what you want is really not in the form you think it is. I am not going to date him. I just like making up stories about people I see on the New York Subway.
