Cali Red by Snoop Dogg
Curator: Ashley McKenzie-Barnes
PR AOR: Craft PR
19 Crimes brought its brand to California and is celebrated a stateside launch with a multi-year partnership with iconic rapper, Snoop Dogg through the release of ‘19 Crimes Cali Red’.
As part of the launch in Canada, the ask was to curate life-sized installations with three Canadian artists from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. The sculptures were to that celebrate the partnership with Snoop Dogg through an epic rendition of him, using elements of the 19 Crimes Cali Red wine directly in the art while setting the tone of the brands core values: anti-authority, rule breaking, culture-creating and redemption.
Each artist created one installation that is on display in an alcohol retailer in their respective city. The chosen artists were:
Carson Ting with the Chairman Ting team
Vancouver (Sept 2020)
Calgary (Sept 2020)
Toronto (Early 2021)
In acknowledgement of the current social and political climate, the brand is honouring this partnership with a $100,000 donation to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, supporting the search for justice for those who face discrimination and inequality.
