The Swing Art Award is a unique partnership between Grolsch and the New Art Dealers Alliance. Grolsch, famous for its iconic Swingtop bottle, introduced the SwingArt Program in 2007 to commission an artist and produce a limited number of bottles featuring the artist’s work.The SwingArt Award, presented for the third consecutive season by NADA, commissions an artwork from a living artist working in the United States to design a graphic for a limited edition collectible Grolsch bottles. Label designs are judged by a panel of five internationally respected curators and representatives. Winners receive a cash prize and their artwork featured on 1,615 bottles.

The limited edition SwingArt bottle will be handed out to guests and exhibitors at NADA Miami Beach 2011, plus an array of events at Grolsch accounts in Wynwood, Design District and South Beach.


Paddle8 creates context for artworks by inviting influential cultural figures to participate as curators. Guest curatosr introduce a grouping of works selected around a theme. Artworks are accompanied by a “dossier” that provides context, insights and multiple pathways to understanding specific artist’s practices. The content created for each exhibition becomes a multimedia archive that serves as an educational tool for all visitors to Paddle8.
