In what is becoming a caffeinated art tradition, Bongo Java Roasting Co. launched its third series of coffee cans bearing locally inspired labels. In the most recent batch of designs, local artists riff on the Obama campaign slogan "Yes We Can."
Buddy Jackson, Jackie Rippey, Jimmy Abegg, Sunny Becks and Paul Harmon (Harmon's contribution is pictured above) designed labels ranging from robots to Neo-Pop Art. In addition to the artwork, each canister bears this explanation:
Five local artists illustrate that we can achieve anything we set our minds on, be it supporting the arts, recycling, our environment, running a marathon, or simply getting a kiss. Yes you Can get a buzz out of supporting artists, small business & farmers. Just buy lots of this coffee!
The 10 oz. cans are available at Bongo stores and online for $9.95.
