MIAMI, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Last night, Bulleit revealed a limited-edition Art in a Bottle Collection at the Bulleit 3D Printed Frontier Experience as part of its partnership with Red Dot Miami and Spectrum Miami during Miami Art Week. The collection is the next installment of the Bulleit Frontier Works project, where Bulleit is once again collaborating with friends on the cultural frontier to push the boundaries of their craft, this time by creating art inspired by innovation.
With the striking Bulleit 3D Printed Bar as the backdrop, media, influencers, art collectors and VIP guests gathered last night for an exclusive first look at the limited-edition art collection, before the bottles were publicly available. Art, mixology, technology and design came together in the space to create an intimate and immersive art viewing experience. In addition to interacting with the artwork, guests also enjoyed 3D printed cocktails and a live canvas painting, as well as cocktails served up by some of Miami’s best bartenders, Dan Binkiewicz and Fraser Hamilton.
Bulleit created the art collection, which includes 12 original works of Bulleit Art in a Bottle and two complementary hand-painted canvases, in collaboration with South Florida artists Jason Skeldon “SKEL” and Elidea. Both artists are known for their unique artistic visions and use of multiple mediums to create something new. It is this same frontier spirit upon which Bulleit was founded that makes Skeldon and Elidea natural collaboration partners for the Bulleit brand. The collection is available for purchase starting today on SaatchiArt.com/shows/BulleitArtInABottle, just in time for the holiday gifting season.
“Miami has a special place in our heart because of the vibrant cultural landscape with world-class art, food, and of course, mixologists,” said Ricky Collett, US Senior Brand Manager of Bulleit. “It was an obvious choice to return to Miami Art Week, this time on the Bulleit 3D Printed Frontier tour, bringing together local artists, robotics pioneers and craft cocktails to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. We’ve now partnered with more than 40 artists since launching Frontier Works in 2017 and can’t wait to share the latest creative innovation by Jason and Elidea with others.”
Jason and Elidea’s art pieces are visual representations of what the cultural frontier means to them. Known in the art community and celebrity circles for his urban “Pop Art” mixed media style, Jason’s art depicts human-animal hybrids who are taking their vocation to new heights, such as mixologists, scientists, architects and tattoo artists. Each character is shown raising a glass of whiskey to toast achievements and their commitments to innovating in new and inspiring ways.
