#IWontGiveUp Gallery Show with Jason Mraz

Did you hear the buzz? Finalists from our #IWontGiveUp contest with Jason Mraz were treated to a special event in NYC on March 8. CanvasPop printed their amazing Instagram photos on canvas, which were hung at the inspiring Animazing Gallery in SoHo.

We surprised Jason with one of his own Instagram photos on canvas. He then spent time one-on-one with each of the finalists, making sure to understand the photo’s history and meaning before signing their canvas.

CanvasPop was excited to help Jason connect with his fans through art. The #IWontGiveUp contest garnered nearly 10,000 entries on Instagram this February.

“Phones make us all be radical photographers,” Mraz told Mashable at the event. “Instagram and CanvasPop bring a lost art form back to the real world.”

Jason Mraz’s fourth album, Love Is A Four-Letter Word, hits the streets from Atlantic Records on April 17. “I Won’t Give Up” is the album’s first single.
