Contest! CocktailsNLEGO presented by Douglas Coupland & Vancouver Art Gallery – November 26, 2013

Douglas Coupland, world renowned artist, sculptor, writer and designer is crowdsourcing his next art project and inviting local talent to participate in support of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

This unique fundraiser has Douglas Coupland presenting the Towering Ambition Contest, commissioning LEGO works by Vancouver firms to win a place in his Spring 2014 exhibit presented by the Vancouver Art Gallery: Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything.

Teams of architects, engineers, designers, and artists will engage in competitive LEGO play, to showcase their creativity, vision and ambition. Coupland will provide each team with a generous amount of LEGO building supplies, and each group will have exactly one week to complete their tower. The winning entry receives the Towering Ambition Award and presentation within Coupland’s 2014 exhibit at the Fuse Festival.

“Vancouver hosts an incredible amount of talent in the building and design spheres,” says Jelly Marketing Principal Strategist, Darian Kovacs, “This is an amazing opportunity see LEGO creativity in action!” Coupland’s partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery certainly sparks unique exposure for local visionaries, bringing together an innovative, inspiring crowd. “We’re honoured to be working these Canadian gems.”

LEGO creations submitted to the Towering Ambition Contest will be presented as part of CocktailsNLEGO on November 26th: This smooth n’ savvy evening of free building will feature these brilliant works, as well as a DJ, open bar, and creative discussion about the moment in creation when LEGO becomes an art supply.
