Rime has been a strong supporter of the arts, Downtown Brooklyn, and Reebok since opening it’s doors 5 years ago. So we thought why not mix the 3 and see what happens. Along with the art contest Reebok will be previewing their up-coming Basquiat Collection.
Reebok will be taking over Rime beginning May 25th, creating a complete experience with the Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work. The main mission for the event though is to get the public excited about art. in general and expressive themselves. We’re inviting artist, students, and anyone else who simply wants to leave there mark to contribute something original to a 18x 22 canvas. Each individual will create art on their own canvas and are encouraged at least start the piece here at Rime since we will be video taping people working as well as have them talk about what inspires their creation if they wish. People can start coming in after May 26 when the Basquiat installation will goes up. We will also be running an art contest with the top 3 winners receiving a pair of Reebok x Basquiat sneakers. Rime will also be giving out a gift certificates for each winner: 1st place – $150, 2nd – $100 and $50 for 3rd. The we will be announcing the winners at an event on Saturday June 9th, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. There will be a D.J. on hand as well as possibly a very special guest.
