CANVAS ARTIST SERIES CONTEST
Students won a $5,000 scholarship!
Hyatt Hotels and Resorts and Canvas Wines, inspired by a love for fine art, wish to inspire others to share their passion of art and wine with the Canvas Artist Series. Hyatt welcomed art students in the 50 United States and D.C. to submit their artistic interpretation of the varietal characteristics of Canvas Wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot.
Winners of our 2012 competition submitted their original artwork in one of three varietal categories - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. Every submission piece underwent a careful review process that included public voting.
Our three winners each received an art scholarship in the amount of $5000 and saw their work transformed into bottle labels for Canvas wine. Katelyn Comeau, as student at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA , won the Cabernet Sauvignon category; Christian Gordon, a student at American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL won for Merlot; and Alexandra Grahame, a student at Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston, MA, won for Chardonnay.
