Art I Love: Barrel, Barrel On The Wall

Last week, Tequila Herradura hosted it’s second annual Barrel Art Collection contest in which over 1,000 artists from across the nation vied for a chance to transform one of Tequila Herradura’s American oak tequila barrels into a work of art.

Each barrel art submission  is judged by an esteemed panel of artists, curators and collectors.  The winners in various markets (such as Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco) can win up to $10,000. The night was gloriously filled with tequila tastings, passed hors d’oeuvres, crafted Tequila Herradura cocktails, music, art and amazing gift bags!

Check out the barrel art below! Let me know what you think. If you’re interested in submitting your work for next year’s Barrel Art Collection, reach out to Heather Kleisner at artist@kleisnerevents.com and provide a bio and imagery of artwork or a link to your website.
