Pop-ups and gallery openings are two things downtown has in spades, but trust Pratt Institute and Hennessy Cognac to make sure the experience is more than fresh–it’s decidedly cool.

Last night kicked off a special exhibition of up-and-coming artists at Openhouse NYC, displaying inspired artwork over the course of 24 hours.

Now in its fourth year, the Wild Rabbit Design Challenge recruits Pratt’s top artists to create a piece inspired by Hennessy’s now-famous “Never stop. Never settle” tagline. The result is an incredible slew of works from across various disciplines, with one artist walking away the over-all winner. A panel of judges that included Nas, Futura, Shepard Fairey, and Ryan McGuinness voted Christiana Theophanopoulos the overall winner for her original piece Meraki, which is the Greek word for passionate.

All of the artwork created will be on display through this evening, concluding at 9 p.m.
