Pabst Blue Ribbon Celebrates 175 Years of Creativity and Design by Launching Art Can Contest 

The Art Can Contest will be judged in collaboration with Juxtapoz Art and will put original art on more than 30 million cans

Started in 2014, the Pabst Blue Ribbon Art Can Contest now has put original art on more than 300 million cans and awarded more than $100,000 to emerging artists.

The 2020 contest will be judged in partnership with Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine.

For more than 25 years Juxtapoz has supported and documented underground art, giving a platform to emerging artists and communities that have been overlooked by the mainstream and commercial art world. 

The winner of the 2020 Art Can Contest will have their work featured on more than 30 million cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, as well as all related packaging in the summer of 2020.

The winner also will receive a $10,000 grand prize and be interviewed by, and have their work featured on, Juxtapoz.com. 

The Art Can Contest is just one element of Pabst Blue Ribbon’s commitment to supporting art in America.

Since 2016 Pabst Blue Ribbon has commissioned more than 175 original murals across the country, and in 2019 launched the first ever National Mural Day, putting up murals in more than 13 cities across the country.
