Recap: Project C.A.N.V.A.S Exhibition & Gala Event 2012Events — By JGM Staff on May 12, 2012 at 6:37 pm
We previously told you about the brand new sneaker company C.A.N.V.A.S (CAN Visually Achieve Success) founded by Nick Cannon and his wife Mariah Carey, it is a project that’s set out to empower youth and young adults across the world. C.A.N.V.A.S shoes are one of a kind, decorated with abstract versions of the primary colors.
With the company taking off strong they have just thrown a decked out Gala event at the Opera Gallery in NYC this past Friday. Many talented artists and influencers were in the building to support Project C.A.N.V.A.S, stars from Mr. Brainwash to Ellen DeGeneres donated their painted shoes to the space. It was an event to help support the creative arts program itself and to help build self-esteem and nurture optimism amongst youths. Auctioned off was a very rare time piece from the prestige Swiss watch company Audemars Piguet that went for 22,000 dollars, big money was in the house that night, we got a chance to experience it all, check the photos below.
